At Oaks Park High School we are committed to ensuring our students make the best progress they can and we see parental engagement as a key part of this. We have therefore developed a learning map for each half term that will tell you what your child is studying for each subject and when their assessments take place. This will enable you to support your child with their home learning and preparation for assessments.
Suggestions on how to use this well:
- Discuss the map with your child and ensure they are clear on the topics they are covering and when assessments take place.
- *For Years 7-11 – Use the gold sheet titled ‘what I could be doing at home with my child?’ to encourage your child to complete independent learning tasks in addition to their directed homework’s.
- For year12-13 – Use the topic guide to encourage your child to conduct super curricular activities around their topics to broaden their understanding.This could including things like; reading around their subjects, watching TV programmes related to their topics, visiting museums.
- Create a study timetable with your child, so they are organised and can follow a balanced programme of home learning.
- Create a revision timetable with your child, so they can prepare for their upcoming assessments.
- These strategies, together with the schools and your support, provide your child with the greatest opportunities to meet their full potential.
Whilst we have trialled this approach with year 7 last year, we welcome your feedback on how we can improve this provision further. Please email the school admin account firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions.If you require any support with your child’s learning please contact your child pastoral leader who will be happy to help you.Please note these learning maps are brief topic overviews for parents to use.
