What is your child learning each day in school? How can you tell if they are doing well or badly? And what can you do to help?

This practical, detailed and user-friendly manual contains absolutely everything you need to know about primary schooling and the new UK curriculum, ensuring your child will succeed and flourish every step of the way.

As parents we do the very best for our children in choosing the right school and preparing them for their very first day. But for the next seven years we have little idea what our child is learning, whether they are doing well or badly and what, if anything, we can do to help.

What Every Parent Needs to Know changes that. It gives us, the parents, the details, the thinking behind and a thorough understanding of the brand-new primary school curriculum launching in September 2014.

Taking us year-by-year through our children's schooling, we'll be given simple explanations of:

- What they'll be taught and why (from phonics checks to SPAG tests)
- What they need to know at the start of each year
- What they should be able to achieve at its end
- The games and exercises we can do at home to help out

What Every Parent Needs to Know explains the confusing jargon while being otherwise jargon free and is written by two parents (who between them have nine children) with many successful years working in staff rooms and classrooms.

Not only will this guide help you understand your children's journey through primary school, but it will also help you prepare, encourage and nurture them every step of the way.

It's the manual every confused, unsure or worried parent has been waiting for.
