Supporting Your Child

Supporting your child

As your child grows up they will need on-going support from the school and of course from parents. 

There are a number of ways in which you can support your child including:

Attending every parents evening. 
Asking them about what they have learnt.
Supporting them with their homework.

Tips for Homework

  • Set aside a place for homework - provide a table, chair and a quiet place to work (TV doesn't help concentration, quiet music might)Set aside a special time when homework is to be done and make sure they also have free time too
  • Checking the time spent on individual tasks
  • Make sure they have the necessary equipment (eg pens, pencils, calculator, ruler etc.)
  • Help your child to plan the time for each task, especially when they have a lot to complete, encourage short breaks every 20 minutes
  • Checking presentation and content of all homework being returned to school
  • Signing the homework planner each week
  • Providing the school with information about any problems through the student planner or by contacting the school directly
