Learners at home
 

 Parent Information

 
Learning at Home
It is important that a critical adult makes a strong commitment to be the supervisor of each student’s education. This adult will normally be a parent or carer but can be a grandparent or much older sibling.
 
We will assist the adult working with each student to make eSchool education a positive and rewarding experience for everyone.  The adult or home tutor should: 
  • monitor the regular delivery and return of student work
  • work with the student to establish daily routines and learning programs
  • tutor, provide advice and guide the student through their learning program
  • work with the student’s teachers to maximise the student’s learning outcomes
  • provide support and encourage self-discipline to ensure success
  • contact the school with queries or concerns in a  timely way to ensure that learning progresses effectively
  • encourage and support participation in Onsite opportunities.
Set up a workspace
Creating an environment at home which will optimise learning is important. This space may include:
  • a place to keep stationery e.g. pencils, paper, calculator
  • access to a computer (and power outlet)
  • a folder to keep important pieces of paper
  • good lighting
  • a copy of your timetable
Structuring the work day
Each student will be given a timetable that shows their online scheduled lessons. The timetable is negotiated between you (the parent/carer), the student and their Learning Advisor, taking into account individual needs and circumstances.
 
The way students choose to manage time can mean the difference between a successful or not-so-successful year.
  • Attend scheduled lessons to keep on top of assigned learning tasks.
  • Plan time wisely and set goals
  • Set up a regular routine and stick to it.
Where families experience difficulty maintaining the agreed schedule, they must contact the Learning Advisor to discuss alternatives. Failure to keep in contact with the school will be regarded as truancy or non-attendance.
