All children in all year groups are returning to school full time form the beginning of the Autumn term 2020.
Returning to school is vital for children’s education and for their wellbeing. We know that many children and young people are eager to return to school to see their friends, but we completely understand that others will be anxious about going back and being away from their families after spending so long at home.
The benefits of being back in school far outweigh the very low risk from coronavirus. The risk to children themselves of becoming severely ill from coronavirus is very low and children transmit the disease less than adults
The education your child receives will build the groundwork for future success but homework can sometimes feel as daunting for parents as it is for children.

Caring for your sick child is among the biggest responsibilities any parent faces.
Children are generally expected to be ‘dry’ at night by a developmental age of five.
It’s not easy to discipline your child but positive discipline techniques will them mature into responsible adults.
If you worry you are not spending enough time with your children, you can relax. Studies show that it is quality, not quantity, of time that makes children thrive.
The early years of a child’s life are very important for their health and development. Parents provide the care that children need to be happy and healthy and to grow and develop well.

Wherever you are in your life, the overall premise is the same. Work/life balance is the amount of time you dedicate towards your work, versus the other aspects of your life.
To get help from a Food Bank start by looking online to see if there are any independent local food banks that you can go to without a referral. If there aren’t any, you’ll need to be sent by someone else. For example by a charity or someone like a GP or social worker.
