"I'm stuck - can you help me?"
"83% of parents struggle to support their child with homework."
The “I’m stuck – can you help me?” report commissioned by Becta, the government agency for technology in education, suggests there is a desire from parents to become more involved in their child’s education with the majority (81%) calling for more guidance and advice on how best to support their children’s learning outside of the classroom.
Simple technologies like school websites and learning platforms can aid parents in making homework hell a thing of the past, providing parents with timely information which allows them to keep up to date with school learning and reinforce the work done in the classroom, at home.

Friday Parents Group
We would like to invite you to our coffee morning, which is held every Friday at 9:00 till 10:30am in the Birchfield Buddies bungalow.
Come and join us for a laugh and a chat with other parents just like you, share your ideas and pass on helpful information like, who knows local dentists who are good with children who don’t sit still, where to buy specialized clothes, toys, or equipment and how to get them settled for bed!
So take some time out for yourself, enjoy a cup of tea/coffee and crumpets.
While you make new friends, those tiny tots will find lots of fun things to keep them occupied.
We look forward to seeing you there.
