Understanding Progress in English: A Guide for Parents

This is a leaflet published by the National Strategies to support you with specific things you can do to support your child with their progress in English. The first 4 pages are especially useful with quick and easy things to try.


Catch-Up Literacy

The following leaflets are tailored to parents of pupils who are underperforming in English when they start high school in year 7.

It is really important to continue reading with your child even once they have started their secondary education, and these leaflets will explain how best to help them with their reading and spelling at home.
