At Etone College we are committed to developing a partnership with parents/ carers and supporters of our pupils that shares mutual respect and the shared aim of ensuring our pupils progress in everything they do.
With the start of the New Year we have been so excited to welcome our parents and carers into school for our Parent/ Career Support Workshops. The goal of these workshops is to look at one element of school life in each, and consider how best our pupils can be supported both in school and at home.
On Wednesday we began this journey with our first session on Supporting your Child with Reading and Homework. Over the course of this session attendees were introduced to some key strategies to encourage children to read, develop their writing and build confidence in their oracy skills. In addition there was an opportunity to share some of the principles behind homework at Etone College. With those present taking part in discussions around how best to tackle homework at home and get pupils to see the value it holds.
Throughout the session those attending were able to ask questions, discuss ideas and access support from the homework and literacy leads. Following the session all parents and carers were extremely positive about the experience and are eager to return for our next session.
In a post pandemic world it has never been more important for schools and home to communicate and build a strong relationship built on the shared goals of supporting pupils to succeed in all they do. We at Etone are really looking forward to growing these sessions and to seeing even more friends of Etone in the coming months.
The next parent support session is set provisionally for Wednesday 2nd March and will be on Helping your Child Revise, with a focus on KS4.
