Resources to support your child at home

How can I help my child succeed when Remote Learning?

  1. Be ambitious for your child. Fill your child with a sense of belief and self-confidence every day. Be a proud parent. Talk positively about their future and engage with our Careers Advisor, Mrs Sandy. With your support and guidance they can achieve great things!
  2. Set clear rules and boundaries - especially on access to computer games, mobile phones and social media before bedtime. Ensure your child is in bed by 21:30 on school nights (without access to computers or a mobile phone) and that they have plenty of digital downtime. Promote a healthy lifestyle including eating breakfast before lessons start, taking daily exercise outdoors, enrichment activities and spending time with family and friends within the current government guidelines.
  3. Ensure your child attends school on time every day. Absenteeism leads to underachievement. All students must be online at 08:35 daily. You wouldn't be permitted to arrive late for work so we have a duty to take punctuality seriously.
  4. Be prepared for school. Students must take responsibility for organising equipment for each lesson. Keep a watchful eye to ensure their children are well prepared for school whilst encouraging independence.
  5. Promote a love of reading. Take the time to discover the magic of books by reading aloud with your child, talking to your child about the book you are reading or the book you enjoyed as a child. Role model reading to your child.
  6. Talk to your child about their schooling. Ask them to show you their work or teacher feedback and discuss any upcoming assessments and reports. Always promote a growth mind-set and be solutions focused.
  7. Prepare a workspace at home. Ensure your child has access to a calm and quiet space to complete their remote learning. Get in touch with your Key Contact if there you need any support.
  8. Attend virtual school events and parents evenings to support your child. Supporting your child at virtual parents’ evening and other school events shows them that you care. If you can’t make it, contact your Head of Year for alternatives.
  9. Take note of all school communications. Monitor the school website, emails, text messages, Facebook and Twitter accounts for regular updates. Take note of key dates and always communicate with the school in a polite and respectful manner. Keep in regular contact with your child’s Key Contact as a first point of call.
  10. Uphold and promote school initiatives. We can make a difference to children’s lives by having sky high expectations of them. A call may be made home because our teachers care enough to never ignore low standards. If we all row in the same direction our children will be on course to great things!
