How to Be More Involved in Your Child's Education

Parental involvement is the key to your child’s academic success. The more you show your child that you care about their learning and encourage their efforts, the more they will flourish at school. Here is some great advice from an independent school for boys in Buckinghamshire on how to be more involved in your child’s education…

Make time
Encourage your child to talk to you about school and share interesting things they are learning in class. Find out what subjects they are enjoying and support their learning online or with a museum trip. This will not only show your child just how much you care about their education, but it will also provide some quality family time.

Homework
Motivate your child to do their homework by sharing this study time together. You can catch up on your emails or do an online course while your child does their homework. If they get stuck or want your opinion, you will be on hand to help.

Reading & writing
Support your child’s literacy skills with regular reading and writing tasks. For example, you can help your son or daughter to practice writing by incorporating it into your daily activities, such as writing your shopping list. You can also find out what books they are reading in class and get a copy to read together at bedtime.

Experiment
If your child shows an interest in science or likes to see how things work, you can help to stimulate their curiosity with some home learning experiments. These are easy to set up using household items, such as baking soda and vinegar – perfect for demonstrating an eruption!

School
Get to know your child’s school, teachers, and community and keep on top of important dates. Most schools share their news, events, and achievements in a weekly newsletter, or on their social media channels. Remember to add school events to your own family calendar, so that you can all stay up to date.
