Ensuring Parents Play an Active Role in Their Child's Education
Engaging our Parents
As a parent, it’s only natural that you’ll want to take an active role in your child’s education. At GEMS, we actively encourage parents to engage with their child’s learning and are leading the way by becoming the first school to introduce a parental engagement strategy into all our schools.
What does the research say?
Research has shown that the single biggest reason a child does well at school is the support of parents who take a real, active and consistent interest in their child’s education at home. The research suggests that a parent who is actively and consistently engaged in their child’s learning can add the equivalent of two to three years of additional education over their school career. This is precisely why we’re so keen to promote the importance of parental engagement.
Every parent has something to offer
Conversation is at the heart of positive parental engagement. It’s not necessarily about sitting with your child and helping them with their homework. Every parent, regardless of their culture, language or experience, can talk to their child and show an interest in their learning. By asking questions, listening and encouraging you child with praise and direction, you can reinforce learning and become an active partner in the educational process.
