Advice & Information
'Education Begins at Home' campaign - The Welsh Assembly Government's campaign to provide information to parents on how to support their child's learning at home. Helping with homework, attending parents evenings and asking how they get on in school can all help with their school enjoyment. There is a Facebook page(www.facebook.com/beginsathome) and twitter account (https://twitter.com/edubeginsathome) for parents and carers with tips and links to websites which can help them support their children’s learning.
