It’s a pleasure to collaborate with LeapFrog again, this time, helping prepare parents for Parents’ Evening this October.

LeapFrog

Parents’ Evening is of course, a chance to chat to your child’s teacher about their progress and how well they’re settling in at school so far. It also enables you to understand any problems and set up additional support where needed.

Both my sons have started a new (outstanding) school in a new town and my husband and I are looking forward to an update on their progress.

Here are my Parents’ Evening tips in association with LeapFrog.

  1. Be Prepared

You are likely to only have a 10 minute slot with the teacher so make sure you ask the questions you set out to whilst being open to listening to key points made by the teacher. I know it’s hard not to become emotional (I cry easily) but stay calm whilst discussing your child. Which leads me to…

2. Be Calm

Be calm and open. Remember that like you, the teacher wants the best for your child. Know that you can ask for a longer follow-up meeting if anything arises which needs further discussion. I’ve always been offered meetings with both the form tutor and the head of school where needed. Some teachers are happy to respond to emails or have phone conversations too so don’t feel you need to ask everything in that one slot.

3. Be Proactive

Do be proactive and enquire about what you can do at home to help support your child be it to help them feel more settled in school or academically. Teachers will always offer useful tips and links to resources and home-based learning systems such as LeapStart so you can keep supporting your child out of school hours.

LeapStart encourages children to learn through play and both my children adore theirs. Oliver enjoys helping his little brother Alexander learn through the system and as the levels grow with your child, LeapStart complements school-based skills like reading, maths, science and geography alongside social skills such as logic and reasoning.

    I would love to win for my son Anthony. He was born 5 weeks early and has always been a slow learner hes now being asessed for autism and a few other things. Because hes always late learning i try as much as i can to bring him on and get him up to speed with the rest of his class and this looks perfect. learning but he would think we were playing perfect

    I’d love to win this for my 5 year old non verbal autistic son as he loves learning and is number/letter mad. I’m hoping that he will start talking soon as I’d love to hear his voice & anything that encourages his to talk has to be worth a try.
