Student Support Materials

There are a wide range of materials available to support learning.  Click on the tabs to the right of this page to access the particular links to educational websites.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure these websites are suitable for our pupils, we cannot be responsible for their content and would encourage parents to monitor their child whilst working on-line.

EAL (English as an Additional Language)

  • Having a friendly looking dictionary / thesaurus to use (developing vocabulary through conversation and in homework etc)
  • Oxford Primary Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Dictionary (Oxford Dictionary) - goes over the English Language rules in a nice, accessible way
