Here are 10 potential approaches which you could use to further involve yourself in your child’s learning journey.
- Get to know your child’s Pupil Support Teacher.
- Talk to your child regularly about his or her studies.
Get to know which subjects they like or dislike, and why. Make sure that you know which levels they are studying at, and what their plans are for future study.
- Monitor your child’s behaviour closely and let us know if you see a problem developing.
To help you, use the Homework Diary, Tracking Reports and Annual Reports, and above all come to the Parent’s Meetings.
- Tell your child’s Pupil Support Teacher about any concerns you might have about your child’s progress.
If you contact the school on any matter, please leave your name so that we can follow up any concerns you have.
- Look at your child’s Homework Diary/Planner.
Each pupil is given one at the start of each session.
Make sure that he or she is still using it, and sign it.
- Check the Homework Guide in the Handbook/Website.
Let your child’s Pupil Support Teacher know if your child does not seem to be getting enough homework.
- Take a look at our School Aims, and let us know what you think.
- Complete any questionnaire that you might be offered at Parents’ Evenings.
Your views will help us to get better.
- Follow @CN_HS on twitter, check Website regularly & weekly section in the Bellshill Speaker.
This will keep you up to date with all that is going on.
- Come along to all school events you can manage to.
You should also give serious consideration to joining the Parent’s Council (Mrs H McGhee Acting DHT, can give you full details).
