Help your child

Below are many of the ways in which you can help your child achieve their best whilst at Baldersby St James School.


  • Attend Parents’ Evening – make another appointment if you are unable to attend

  • Attend parent information evenings for ways in which to support your child

  • Keep a check on your child’s reading record/diary

  • Listen to your child read – preferably 3 to 5 times a week – research shows this leads to improved reading and  writing skills

  • Ensure your child is suitably dressed in school uniform, has suitable equipment and has appropriate clothing for PE

  • Read our Newsletters and save them for future reference

  • Visit our information board at the entrance to the school

  • Check the school website regularly

  • Provide a quiet environment for homework. Help your child if necessary. Mathematics and English, particularly spelling, reading and tables will be a regular feature – please check your child’s bag for homework!

  • Make an appointment with the Class Teacher or Mrs Nayler if you have any concerns or questions
