Bousfield Primary School


We know that the terms used in education may not always resonate with parents and carers. We want to ensure that we can all talk the same language when it comes to learning whether that is at school or at home.  

Educational Terminology

TheSchoolRun is a mum-led website that has a whole host of information and materials. Its free primary-school glossaries explain all the maths, English, grammar, science and computing terms you need to know.

  • Find the term you want to read in their comprehensive list, then click through for a plain-English, parent-friendly guide packed with examples, teachers' tips and step-by-step explanations.

As always, we encourage parents and carers to prompt teachers and staff when using acronyms or terminology which may not be familiar and ask us to explain. TheSchoolRun Glossaries
