How to help your child at school

At The Coppice, we are developing a range of resources designed to help explain to Parents and Carers the approaches we take in our teaching, so that understanding of how your child is being taught is enhanced and then where Parents and Carers wish to further help their child, this is more readily possible. 

The resources will cover a variety of areas, such as:

  • Phonics
  • Reading
  • Maths

The resources will be multi-format, including videos. 

The first resources available can be found from the list below. This site will continue to be updated with further resources being added in the coming weeks.

Mr Laight (Assistant Headteacher) and Mrs Russell (Phonics Leader) have recorded a short video presentation for you that gives an introduction to phonics, explains the principles of the school's approach to teaching phonics, and gives an overview of the most important information that you need to know about the phonics screening check, which all Year One children complete in June.

You can access the recording from the button below.
