Helping Your Child At Home

Helping your child at home can have a huge impact on your child’s ability to understand, retain and develop their learning at school. At Ebbsfleet Green, we not only ensure that homework is set on a weekly basis, but we also encourage our children to read regularly and access online learning sites to support their learning. 

We believe that parents and carers must foster their child’s love of learning by regularly listening to their children reading aloud and by checking in with what their children are learning at school on a daily basis. 

Your child’s Home School Contact Book is also regularly updated with information regarding your child’s education (e.g. daily reading) and all online login and password details are recorded in here. 

Here you will find a number of resources to help you enhance your child’s education at home: 

E-Safety

Being online is an integral part of children's lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a part of children's online world.

The internet and online technology provides new opportunities for children's learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks.

Sometimes it isn’t enough to protect children from online harm by simply banning sites or installing firewalls and filters; therefore, at Ebbsfleet Green, we encourage our parents and carers to maintain an open and ongoing discussion about online safety at home with their children.

Well-being

Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing is so important for the emotional, social and physical development of your child. 

Now more than ever, during this period of ‘new normal’ and changes to their learning, your child may be experiencing anxiety, changes in their behaviour and attitudes towards learning, normal tasks and routines. 

Likewise, you as a parent may also feel pressured to ensure that your child undertakes significant learning at home, or perhaps even anxious or worried that your child may have regressed educationally. One of the most important things you can do to ensure that your child remains happy and keen to learn, is to promote positive feelings and emotions at home.
