1 Through Key Stage 4 Years 10 & 11

2 Research has highlighted there’s a direct link between parental involvement and children’s performance in school. One survey, commissioned by Becta, of 1,000 children and 1,000 parents of children came to the following conclusion: “Researchers have found a consistent link between increasing parental engagement in a students’ learning and improved attendance, behaviour and achievement – the parent/carer’s influence on a child’s learning is more important than the schools.”

3  Support the school in supporting your child  Discuss progress with them  Encourage them to get grade 1’s (outstanding) for their Effort, Homework & Attitude  Take decisive action when 3, 4 or 5 grades regularly crop up.  Come to Parents’ Consultation evenings & Progress Review Days

4  Monitor homework  Help them to set & achieve targets for improvement  Sign your child’s planner on a weekly basis  Ensure your son or daughter prepares fully for the main examination periods  Ensure the best possible attendance for your son or daughter
