Numeracy and Literacy Support

Words For Life

As a parent you can make all the difference to your child’s communication skills. Helping your child learn to communicate will help them develop good relationships, do well at school and be confident and happy. You can help your child more than anyone else as you know them best, care about them and want to give them the best start in life.

The website Words For Life gives you an idea of what communication milestones your baby and child might reach as they grow. There are ideas for fun activities you can do together to help your children develop their skills.

National Numeracy Parent Toolkit

National Numeracy is an independent charity that works to improve numeracy, or ‘everyday maths’, in adults and children in the UK. Among other things, we are co-secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group on maths and numeracy, we provide maths support and school improvement services in schools, and are members of the Joint Mathematics Council.

The National Numeracy Parent Toolkit features useful advice, resources and information that have all been reviewed and carefully selected by our Parental Engagement Team.

Book Trust

Book Trust brings you the best book recommendations for children’s books. We offer monthly roundups of the best new books, booklists, and the ever-popular 100 best books for children booklist.

Whether you’re looking for recommended books, the best children’s books, the most popular children’s books, books for 5 year olds, books for 11 year olds, or just information on children’s books, this is the place for you.
