On Wednesday 4th May we threw open our doors for our third Parent/ Carer Support Workshop. Following on from our session for KS4 parents, we welcomed parents of KS3 pupils as we explored how to “Help Your Child Revise” and support them in their secondary education.
The educational layout has changed drastically over the years and parents were able to reflect on how different it was during their time at school. In the modern workplace with competition being what it is, preparing for the end goals has never been more important. With that in mind we were able to consider what support your children receive in school, some top strategies you can help them with at home and consider how to eliminate the barriers that they may face.
Additionally our core subject leads were on hand to provide advice on how best to support those subject specifically, with tips, website and guidance that will defiantly help in preparing your children for any future assessments.
Mr Bowley was overjoyed once more at the support from Etone’s Friends “As always it is great to see the friends of Etone showing their support and working together with the staff and their children to get the best possible outcomes for their education. I think it is a real strength of Etone parents that they support us in everything we do.”
From parents who have joined us this year as their child transitions to Secondary school in Year 7 to those who are starting the GCSE journey with us in Year 9, it was wonderful to get a chance to join in supporting our pupils with their subjects.
With that we are looking forward to our next Parent Carer Support Workshop on: Supporting with Careers and Learning for Life on Wednesday 15thJune. If you would like to attend please contact the school.
