Help Your Child

Below are many of the ways in which you can help your child achieve their best whilst at Meadowside School.

  • Attend every Parents’ Evening – make another appointment if you are unable to attend
  • Keep a check on your child’s reading record/diary
  • Listen to your child read – preferably 3 to 5 times a week – research shows this leads to improved reading and writing skills
  • Ensure your child is suitably dressed in school uniform, has suitable equipment and has appropriate clothing for PE
  • Read our Newsletters and save them for future reference
  • Visit our information board at the entrance to the school
  • Check the school website regularly
  • Provide a quiet environment for homework. Help your child if necessary. Numeracy and Literacy, particularly spelling, reading and tables will be a regular feature – please check your child’s bag for homework!
  • Make an appointment with the Class Teacher or Mr Ashley if you have any concerns or questions
  • If you can, try to help in school with swimming, reading, trips or any other expertise you can offer
  • Come along to concerts, shows, Sports Days, sports matches and our special events if you are able
