How you can help your child
- Family comes first and must be your priority.
- You are not expected to be your child’s teacher. Please do contact the school if you are struggling with the work that has been set.
- It would be helpful to provide a dedicated work-space for your child along with the following equipment:
- IT device
- pad of paper
- pen, pencil, colouring pens
- Eraser, pencil sharpener and ruler 12”/30cm
- maths equipment
- Oxford School Dictionary
- French, Spanish or German Dictionary (if applicable).
- Stick to a routine where possible. It may be helpful to print out a copy of your family timetable and how the school day will fit into it.
- Recognise the need for regular breaks for your children.
- Help your child to eat healthily.
- Encourage children to keep in contact with their friends.
- Enable children to be punctual for any live sessions.
- During academic learning, the focus should be entirely on schoolwork sessions, therefore apps/tabs that are not relevant to academic learning should be closed and mobile phones put away.
- Keep communicating with us – if there is something that needs to be addressed or we could be doing something better, please do let us know.
- For Games and PE lessons, it might be helpful for children to change into sports clothes to make a healthy distinction between academic work and physical exercise.
