How to help your child:

  • Be positive about Maths at home – Don’t say things like ‘I always hated Maths’ or ‘I never understood Maths’ because that might make your child start to think that themselves.
  • Find Maths in everyday life  Help your child to understand how important Maths is by including  them in Maths at home for example working out the change you should get and reading timetables.
  • Praise your child  Even if your child is struggling to get the answer right, encourage them to keep trying and they will improve.
  • If you struggle with Maths yourself  Read through the Priory Calculation Policy and see how your child is being taught at school.
