HOMEWORK  12.11.21  


Every child is having a ‘One Page Profile’ in FP2.  


What is the purpose of one-page profiles? 


A one page profile is a summary of what is important to a child and how they want to be supported. It will help us in school to help and support the children to achieve their goals. A one page profile captures all the important information about a child on a single sheet of paper. It was very successful last year in Year 2.  

Please sit with your child and answer the questions together. The teachers will type up the answers and make a colourful profile for each child. Please see overleaf an example of a one page profile for our puppet Fflic.
