Helping Your Child
At Gosberton Academy, we believe that a strong partnership between home and school is crucial for a learner's success. Here are some key areas where your involvement can make a significant impact:
Reading at Home
Encourage a love for reading by setting aside dedicated time each day for reading together. Whether it's a bedtime story or exploring books of interest, this simple practice fosters a lifelong passion for learning and language. This will also support your child's aim of trying to receive rewards for the Reading Challenge.
Asking Your Child About Their Day
Engaging in conversations about your child's school day helps create a supportive environment. Ask open-ended questions to learn about their experiences, challenges and triumphs. This not only strengthens your bond but also provides insight into their academic and social life.
Engaging with Parents' Evenings
Parents' evenings are a valuable opportunity to connect with your child's teachers, gaining a deeper understanding of their progress, strengths and areas for growth. Make the most of these meetings to actively participate in your child's educational journey. These are held three times a year.
Coming to Speak to Staff If You Have Worries
We understand that each child is unique, and challenges may arise. Our staff are here to help. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any concerns or questions. Open communication ensures a collaborative effort in supporting your child's wellbeing and development.
Ensuring They Are School-Ready
Prepare your child for a successful start by ensuring they are school-ready. This includes establishing routines, promoting independence, and fostering a positive attitude towards learning. A smooth transition sets the foundation for a fulfilling school experience.
Attending School Events
Where possible, please participate in the vibrant school community by attending events such as Parent Showcases, Class Assemblies, Church Services and other school activities throughout the year. Your presence makes a difference, not only to your own child but to all learners as they have the opportunity to showcase their talents and learning to many new faces.
Staying Up-to-Date with the MyEd App
Stay informed about school news, events and important updates by using the MyEd app. This convenient tool allows you to access real-time information, ensuring you never miss out on essential details concerning your child's education.
We value the partnership between home and school and appreciate your commitment to your child's education. Together, we can create a nurturing environment where every learner can thrive and reach their full potential.
