Free Family Learning Courses

Dear parent/carer

Please see the message below that has been shared with me from Vicky Powell, Parent Support Worker with Knowsley Family Learning and Parenting Service.

The courses are free and may be useful in supporting you support your child whether you are accessing our remote learning or you are a  key worker helping your child's learning in addition to their attendance at school.  The courses are also good support for general home learning and will, I am sure, help you and your child into the future as we get through the difficult current times.

The courses in the first table are aimed more at children in Early Years and Years 1 and 2, while the table below that has courses that support right through all the primary school years.

I hope you are keeping safe and the courses below are useful, Mr Hanley
