Family Learning

Much learning, both formal and informal will take place in the family home. Parents have an opportunity to share sometimes unique experiences and aptitudes with their children. Co-operative projects between schools and parents can be free from the traditional constraints of homework and provide new and creative ways to enhance learning and build stronger links between home and school.

Ocean Maths in East London

The Ocean Estate in east London is one of the most disadvantaged in the country. With the help of a New Deal for Communities grant the Ocean Maths Project was launched in the estate's schools.

Its aim was to help children make greater progress in learning maths. The philosophy behind the project was simple; children who get support with their school work at home make much better progress in a subject.

The challenge was to get parents, many of whom had not enjoyed their own time at school, involved in doing maths homework.
