How you can help your child at home

At Brudenell, we believe that parental involvement is key to a child's success but we also realise that knowing how best to support your child is vital.  On this page are a number of examples of ways in which you can help, including pieces of excellent homework that have already been completed with your help.

If you have high aspirations and expectations this will encourage your child to work hard and value education.

Use the Language of learning

School's have a responsibility to teach many different attitudes, skills and knowledge and we do not expect you to know all of this but if you are interested in your child and their progress then praise them for their approach to the learning - it will ALWAYS help.

I.C.T is a fun and effective way for children to practise and develop their skills.

 Every child in school can access the DB website from home using their own log on details and there are always activities and homework tasks they can complete.

Here are some other great web-sites for your children to access. We will continue to add and update these sites throughout the year.
