How was school today? Information guide

Parents and carers have a vital role to play in helping their children to learn and, more importantly, to enjoy school and learning. This guide will help explain what your child is learning in secondary school. It will give you some ideas about how to help your child and where to get more information, and will explain how their progress will be measured and reported to you.
