Save the Children and GSAP are committed to ensuring that every child reaches their full potential. Evidence tells us that a positive home learning environment contributes to a child's readiness to learn and has a positive impact on children's educational outcomes.

The Families Connect 8 week Programme at Rosemount Primary School & St Annes Primary School have been completed and everyone enjoyed this Innovative programme. Children and parents gained new skills and were given the resources to play the games at home and use the the resources they acquired.

The programme provides a series of activities, techniques and games parents and carers can practise with their children, whilst in the home environment and during the course of their regular day. The programme recognises the role parents play in the education of their children and the value in creating a home environment that is conducive to learning. Families Connect is unique in that it focuses on three key areas:

1) Social and emotional development

2) Literacy & language development

3) Numeracy and mathematics

Each of the eight workshops uses play as the vehicle for learning and interaction with parents and between parents and their children. No other learning programme provides support in theses three areas.
