“Most children have two main educators in their lives – their parents and their teachers. Children achieve more when schools and parents work together. Parents can help more effectively if they know what the school is trying to achieve and how they can help.” (Department For Education)
It’s simple: great results don’t just happen. They happen when children, teachers and parents work together. We are blessed with incredibly supportive parents and carers (thank you!) but some of you have been asking us for advice about how you can get further involved with the academic side of your children’s lives. This section of the website is devoted to providing you with the tools you need to do this.
The materials here reflect the best practice that goes on daily at Barr Beacon; the ‘how to revise…’ guides are written by your children’s teachers. As time goes on, these will be revised and new guides will be added to keep pace with a changing curriculum. Obviously, there are some things that don’t change that much, which is why the first guide we’ve produced is something that affects us all: spelling.
Over the coming months this section is going to expand rapidly, so keep coming back to check what’s new and if there’s anything specific you would like advice about please feel free to contact us.
