Helping your child

As a parent you can make an enormous difference to your child’s chances of success in school, at home and in their later life.  Working in partnership with your child’s school can help them to succeed.

We see the relationship between home and school as being extremely important in determining how successful a student is.  It is important that there is a shared philosophy and both parties are clear about what they can expect from each other.

A good partnership also involves transparency, honesty and clear channels of communication so that you are fully informed about your child’s learning and development.

There are a number of ways in which parents can become even more involved in their child’s education at Samuel Ryder Academy. Some of the formal opportunities are listed below but parents are encouraged to contact staff at the Academy at other times if they have any concerns or queries.
