Floppy's Phonics

In school we follow the floppy phonics scheme. It is a step-by-step synthetic phonics reading scheme which introduces the children to the letters and sounds – the alphabetic code – that will become the foundation of their reading and writing.

Each week we kindly ask for a £1 voluntary donation towards our EYFS fund. Money donated is used to enhance provision and support the learning development of the children in Reception. 

Thank you for your support.

How to Support your child's mental health and wellbeing at home

We all have mental health. Mental health is about our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our moods. Looking after our mental health is important. We all have small feelings every day; these can sometimes feel strong and overwhelming, whether happy or sad, but they go away before too long. Sometimes we experience big feelings; these feel strong and overwhelming for a long time. They stop us doing what we want to in our lives.

What can you do? 



























  • Make conversations about mental health a normal part of life: Anywhere is a good place to talk; in the car, walking the dog or cooking together. Model everyday talk about feelings such as by talking about a TV character’s feelings.
  • Give your full attention: We all know it’s horrible to be half listened to. Keep eye contact, focus on the child and ignore distractions.
  • Check your body language: Try to keep it open and relaxed and make sure you come down to the child’s level.
  • Take it seriously: Don’t downplay what the child is saying or tell them they’re “just being silly”. Resist the urge to reassure them that everything is fine.
  • Ask open questions: Such as “How did your day go today?” This will help to extend the conversation.
  • Calmly stay with the feelings that arise: It can be our automatic reaction to steer away from difficult emotions.
  • Offer empathy rather than solutions: Show that you accept what they are telling you but don’t try to solve the problem.
  • Remember we are all different: Respect and value the child’s feelings, even though they may be different to yours.
  • Look for clues about feelings: Listen to the child’s words, tone of voice and body language.
  • Some ways to start a conversation about feelings might be: “How are you feeling at the moment?” “You don’t seem your usual self. Do you want to talk about it?” “Do you fancy a chat?” “I’m happy to listen if you need a chat”
