Personal Development

Your child’s personal development is just as crucial as their learning in English, Maths and Science.  It is how your child develops their personality, their learning styles and how they deal with the ups and downs of life.  Now more than ever it is important to take time to talk to your child about how they are feeling, things are strange for us all at the moment and we are out of our normal routine.  Please see below a link to support you if you are unsure how to talk about corona virus with your child:
