Supporting your child's learning
For many years now we have worked closely with 'Family Learning' at Surrey County Council, hosting a range of workshops and support groups for parents who wish to develop their skills to support their children further with their learning. Our longstanding group for parents of whom English is an additional language, is particularly successful. More recently, we have working with Family Learning for parents who want to develop their understanding of the maths curriculum.
