Hareside Primary School

Supporting Your Child

As well as encouraging your child with their work and attitude there are also some very practical things you can do to help them.  Below we have gathered together a range of suggested activities and ideas for games etc which will help with your child’s learning. Please explore, print some of the booklets and ideas and try them with your child.  New information will be added here regularly so keep checking back for new ideas.

If you feel you need some specific advice on how to help your child with a particular issue or can’t find the information you need than please contact us.
