What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?

  • To work as independently as they can; recognising that making mistakes is an important part of the learning process and not giving up. (Be Positive, Aim High)
  • To make positive and constructive comments on how they are finding the tasks, their level of enjoyment and to ask questions of their teachers to help inform their understanding of what they have to do, taking ownership of their learning  (Be Positive, Show Respect, Take Part)
  • To show respect for, and accept help and support from their teachers and parents in a positive manner showing appreciation for their efforts (Follow Instructions, Show Respect, Be Polite)

 

Our expectations for parental support:

 

  • To provide suitable space/environment for children to complete learning assignments including securing the use of suitable devices
  • To set clear routines and boundaries for learning time
