School Life at Poolsbrook

Parents are a vital part of school life and we wish to work in partnership with you to ensure your child/ren achieve the best. There are many ways you can help your child at home.


  • Encourage Independence and confidence in your child by expecting them to dress themselves, fasten their own shoes, mix with other children and by being responsible for their own belongings.
  • Talk about school in a positive, relaxed way. Ask your child about their day at school. Encourage them to talk.
  • Encourage a positive attitude to books by reading with your child and sharing stories etc
  • Try not to compare your child with other children.
  • Try to provide experiences at home with jigsaws, pencils, crayons etc
  • Take an interest in homework and provide a quiet place, away from distractions like TVs.
  • Read all letters that your child brings home.
  • Keep us informed of any changes to circumstances that may affect your child. 
  • Make sure that your child goes to bed at a reasonable time. Children need lots of rest and a tired child does not learn.
