All parental support is extremely valued by school. We are very aware of, how in the past, formal homework has proved problematic and can cause difficulties within the home. We are very happy to set your child homework, if you so desire.
Our main platform for setting work to be done at home is through Purple Mash. This is an online platform where teachers can set and mark work.
If your child does not have access to the internet we can provide an alternative.
All parents and carers are encouraged to maintain all support for their child even after they join us at Walworth. We are principally an education setting and any supportive therapies should be maintained.
It is possible to support your child’s learning in many simple ways using your special time with them. This can be looking and reading books together, or as you are out and about, look at common words and numbers that appear on buildings or in shops. Play simple games like ‘eye spy’, recognising different colours of cars, looking at prices on shop items and many more.
We are sure you have many more suggestions, but whatever it is, make it fun.
