How to Be More Involved in Your Child's Education*

*This is a collaborative post*

Your involvement in your child’s education can make a huge difference to their academic success. The more you show an interest in their learning and encourage their efforts, the more they will flourish at school.

Here is some great advice from an independent school in Somerset, on how to be more involved in your child’s education…

Family time

Encourage your child to talk to you about school and explain what they are learning in class. Find out what subjects they are enjoying and support their learning outside of school with a day out to an art gallery or a museum. This will not only show your child just how much you care about their education, but it will also provide some quality time together.


Motivate your child to do their homework by sharing this study time together. You can catch up on your emails or do an online course while your child completes their homework. If they get stuck or want your opinion, you will be on hand to help.

Reading & writing

Support your child’s literacy skills at home with regular reading and writing tasks. For example, you can help your son or daughter to practice writing by incorporating it into your daily activities, such as writing your shopping list. You can also find out what books they are reading in class and get a copy to read together at bedtime.


If your child shows an interest in science or likes to learn how things work, you can help to stimulate their curiosity with some home learning experiments. These are easy to set up using household items, such as baking soda and vinegar – perfect for creating a mini eruption!

Keep a calendar

Get to know your child’s school, teachers and community and keep on top of important dates. Most schools share their news, events and achievements online or in a weekly newsletter. Remember to add all school events to your own home calendar, so that the whole family can stay up to date.
