Course overview

This is specialised course designed to assist parents in supporting their children's English language development during primary education years. Through this program, parents gain practical strategies and resources to enhance their children's reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. The course covers various aspects of English language learning, including phonics, vocabulary development, grammar and comprehension.

The "English to Help your Children" (Primary) course is a series of friendly and supportive sessions that explore how your children are taught in primary school. The course will be delivered by a Primary English subject expert who will provide the opportunity to learn about up-to-date practice used by Primary Teachers and discover and try out method methods that you can use at home to help your children to consolidate their learning and become more confident at school.

During the course you will explore:

  • Phonic knowledge and skills as the route to decoding words
  • Reading through blending sounds in unfamiliar words
  • The use of Prefixes and Suffixes
  • What are children expected to know by Year 6? What do KS2 assessment questions look like?

You will also develop your own literacy skills around reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar, which will help you to become more confident with supporting your child on their learning journey up to KS2.

There are no entry requirements for this course.

There are now formal assessments, but we will track your progress. To help us get a better understanding of your maths needs you will complete an initial assessment at the start of the course.

For further information, please contact Stacey Johnson on 01782 2542211.

Once you have completed the course, you will have the option of progressing to a English qualification or further learning to support you further.

A range of financial support may be available for adult students to help towards the cost of your fees, equipment, childcare and/or other expenses while studying, depending on your personal circumstances and the course you are studying. For more details visit
