Remote learning: how to deal with ‘over-supportive’ parents
Parents aren't teachers - they won't always know how much support is the 'right amount' when it comes to helping their child learn at home. See the strategies that 4 schools are using to help discourage parents from doing their child's work for them, and learn how to use it to your advantage if parents insist on getting over-involved.
- Clarify your remote learning expectations with parents
- Let them know that you expect pupils to talk through their working
- Encourage them to support their child in a different way
- Have open conversations about if and why they're getting too involved
- Use our survey pack to get a broader picture of how families are finding it
