It is vital that the early stages of learning are successful and a positive experience leading to a lifelong love of learning.
We do expect that children will spend very short periods of time reinforcing learning in school for example no longer than fifteen/twenty minutes any evening. Regular short enjoyable sessions will be most beneficial.
We have also taken into consideration the fact that many parents may have more than one child to support with homework and the extra curricular activities that many children may take part in.
