We offer the REAL project to families. This is a targeted programme for selected children which aims to support literacy development by working with them and their parents in the home setting. REAL events are also held in school every term where the parents of all children who attend the Nursery are invited to attend and join in.

Home learning tasks which are based on the children's experiences are sent home every week and children are given the opportunity to take a book home from our lending library to share with their family.
