Free online course

We have developed a free online course for parents and carers, ‘Help your child to read and write’. It teaches everything parents need to know to help their children make a start on their literacy journey.

The course is available here:

The course will help you to:

  • help your child take their first steps in reading and spelling;
  • understand how to help your child build, write and read words;
  • understand how to correct your child when they make a mistake in their reading or writing;
  • have a basic understanding of how phonics works.

Here are some reviews from parents and carers who’ve taken the course:
