Mulberry Park Educate Together Primary is committed to working for, and with, the community through education and extra curricular activities. We welcome the opportunity to develop links with local people and organisations through volunteering, shared projects and through lettings of our fabulous building.

Visit the tabs below for further info and let us know if you have further questions and/or ideas!

At Educate Together we actively encourage the involvement of parents and carers in the education of your children. Research shows that children do better in school if parents take an active part in their child’s education.

How can you support your child?

  • Come into the classroom for ‘activity mornings’ every day (currently suspended)
  • Share books with your child and enjoy talking about them
  • Hear them read their school reading book regularly – at least five times a week
  • Find out and learn with your child about the topics they are doing
  • Visit the school often, talk to the teachers and spend time in the classroom – there will be plenty of opportunities to do this throughout the year
  • Shopping and cooking with your child is an excellent way to use maths in an everyday context
  • Attend open days, parent workshops and open evenings
  • Talk to the children about their time in school: visit our ‘Supporting your child at home’ tab below for conversation starters and resources.
