Supporting learning

It's widely accepted that when parents and families are involved in their child's education, they do better at school and have better feelings and a more positive attitude about learning. By learning together as a family, and making it part of your daily life, it shows you value education and that learning can be enjoyable.

Here are some ideas to help you be a positive role model for learning and help your kids develop a love of learning.
