Supporting Learning at Home

We love parents to support their child's learning in partnership with the school. Class teachers will always make parents aware of  the ideal level of parental involvement at the beginning of the school year. Class webpages on this website may also provide a useful way to connect school, alongside the information regularly sent home with pupils. All children have their own reading diaries and school reading books - it benefits them hugely to have the opportunity to read to somebody at home on a daily basis.

Reading at Home 

There can be few things as powerful as regularly reading to a young child. It has astonishing benefits for children: comfort and reassurance, confidence and security, relaxation, happiness and fun. Giving a child time and full attention when reading them a story tells them they matter. It builds self-esteem, vocabulary, feeds imagination and even improves their sleeping patterns. 

At St Wilfrid's we strongly encourage you to read to your child as well as having them read to you. Below is a leaflet with advice and support around reading with your child in Key Stage Two.

St. Wilfrid's Assessment


In response to the 2014 primary curriculum and the move towards assessment without levels, St. Wilfrid's has developed its own writing tracker to monitor pupil progress and set targets. This will ensure continuity and smooth progression as children make their journey through St. Wilfrid's. 


You might find it useful to look at the age expected targets for writing. As all children progress at different rates, not only in their overall writing ability, but also in key areas, it can assist parents/carers to understand where their child is and what they can do to help with progression.
