Supporting Your Child

Read with them
Discuss what they have read, share books, promote literacy at every opportunity to ensure progress. Encourage your child to read a daily newspaper to keep them informed of world issues. Ensure the paper is a broadsheet like The Guardian or The Independent not a tabloid newspaper.

Encourage your child to talk about what they have learnt in the different subjects
Encourage them to teach you what they have learnt as this will help them with their learning and understanding.

Make sure your child has a quiet place to do their homework
Encourage them to do it away from any distractions – no mobile phones, TV, etc. If this is not possible, we have a study support room which is available for students before/after school.books
