Helping your child
At Great Leighs Primary School we value the support that parents give their children with their learning.
We have prepared a number of guides which will provide the information that you will need to support your child’s learning at home. These guides have been prepared as PDF documents that you can download, save or print.
We hope you find this information useful and enjoy taking an active part in your child’s learning.
Science on SeeSaw
We frequently post science activities that can be completed at home, and the results uploaded via See-Saw. You will find all the latest ones here:
