Back to school!
Published: September 9th, 2022
This week marked a return to normality and – for us parents – a semblance of sanity, with schools throughout England and Wales re-opening to begin Academic Year 2022-23.However committed they are to their learning, children always find the first week back at school after the long summer holidays a bit of a chore; new classrooms, new forms, for some new subjects and, obviously for others, the jump from Early Years into Primary, or from Primary into Secondary. These are challenging transitions for any child to make, particularly if they also have a special education need and/or disability. Moreover, they can be a stressful and confusing time for parents… and that’s where my latest series of guide books can help. Written from over 30 years experience as a teacher, headteacher, deputy head and SEND manager, my Parental Guide Books can help your child hit the ground running this term… and help you collaborate more effectively with their school. After all, parental support is key to your child achieving their maximum potential. Each book covers practically every aspect of what your child should be learning in class – from Early Years to Key Stage 3. From high quality early reading and numeracy, to more advanced writing and mathematical skills, helping them prepare for further education, or the world of work.« Back to Blog
