Supporting your Child at Home

Demonstrate a positive attitude about education to your children.

What we say and do in our daily lives can help them to develop positive attitudes toward school and learning.

Showing our children that we both value education and use it in our daily lives provides them with powerful models and contributes greatly to their success in school.


Encourage your child to read.

Helping your child become a reader will help them in all school subjects and is a key skill for lifelong learning. Support their reading development by having books, magazines and newspapers at home and let your child see you and other family members reading them.

Encourage your child to use the library. As a school we link with Cardonald Library and so all pupils should be familiar with this library.


Support your child with their homework.

Discuss homework with your child, show an interest and talk to them about what they are doing.

If you have any questions about your child’s homework or they are finding it difficult please contact a member of the school leadership team who will work with you, your child and the class teacher to resolve any issues.

You can use the ‘useful links’ section of our website to support your child with their homework. 


Encourage your children to get involved in extra-curricular activities.

Our Active Schools Coordinator organises many activities after school throughout the year. We also have a school choir and opportunities to learn instruments. These are all great ways your child can try new things.


Encourage your child to play!

Time for children to play and socialise with peers is as important as academic learning. Encourage your child to go out and explore and play with friends.

We recognise the importance of play in school to help support a child’s social and emotional wellbeing.
