Parents in Touch was referenced on LBC Radio on 14/11/11. A caller to the Nick Ferrari Breakfast Show phone-in said, "I'm registered with Parents in Touch which is a website based learning tool. You can go on to it, you can get spreadsheets, you can get worksheets, you can get lots of different things to help children with. But you have to take the time as a parent..." - Gary, from Walthamstow.

We have something to help everyone who cares about children and their education. Let's face it, we all worry about our children. As they go through school we have all sorts of questions:
Am I doing all I can to help them through school?
How can I help them with subjects they find difficult?
How can I understand today's teaching methods?
What should I know when choosing a school?
What is taught in each subject and when?
At what stage should my child be now?
In what sequence is a child taught maths topics?
What are phonics?
What should I expect from schools and teachers?
How can I help my child to enjoy reading? What books?
or perhaps you:
don't know enough about the National Curriculum
would like to be reassured by communicating with other parents
need ideas and worksheets you can use at home
would like individual advice.
So what's the difference between parents that know they are doing their best and those that remain unsure? And, more importantly, have happy children at school?
Tens of thousands of parents regularly use Parents in Touch to make that difference.
I was a Headteacher and have taught in both state and independent schools and would like to help you as well. Browse through the main menu headings above to glimpse the huge range of help available.
