How can I support my child in Independent Learning?

Below are some suggested strategies for how you can support your child in their Independent Learning:

  • Show an active interest and provide plenty of praise and encouragement;
  • Support your child taking responsibility for being self-organised.
  • Ensure your child has access to a quiet space where they can work without disruption;
  • Ensure access to the local library and the internet (if this is not possible, ensure your child makes use of the school’s ICT faciltiies);
  • Support your child in planning and establishing a homework routine;
  • Ensure your child is well rested, fed and watered
  • Ensure your child knows that you still love them even if they fail!
