Home-School

At Barwell Church of England Academy we really value the links that we have developed between home and school. We are certain that children, families and school benefit when we all work co-operatively together.

We try our best to use a range of ways to communicate effectively with families. This area of our website gives information and ideas that we hope families will find useful as they support their children’s learning at home.

Resources to Support Learning

In this section we include links to resources that you may read or download to help when supporting your child’s learning at home.

If you have any suggestions for how we may further help, please call in to school or send us a note and let us know.
