At Hogsthorpe, we believe that it is important that the academy works in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the best for all our students.
Support and help from parents is an essential ingredient in a child’s education.
The delivery of the planned curriculum involves parents helping/encouraging children at home with such things as reading, number work, consolidation of acquired skills, etc.
We also welcome parental help in school time for such things as educational visits, swimming, transport to sporting events, assisting children with their work etc. It is our intention to maximise the use of all available facilities and resources including staff/parent expertise.
My Family Coach
We use My Family Coach to help our parents and carers understand their children’s behaviour. My Family Coach is a free website written by behaviour experts with 20 years’ experience working with over 5,000 schools. My Family Coach will support you through the tough times, inspire you with new ideas, and share practical tips to make parenting that little bit easier.
