There are many areas in which you can be highly effective in helping your child succeed, and be fully involved in their education. You can reassure your child about the care we can provide for them or, if you have any concerns you think we should know about, you can get in touch with us by speaking to your child’s personal tutor, or our Welfare or Safeguarding team.
Attendance and punctuality are an important part of everyone’s life. You can help your child to plan their journey so that they attend College regularly and on time. This is an important trait for working life that employers value highly.
Our on-site facilities give students access to real-life working environments. This could include structured voluntary work as well. You could help your child to find work placement/s to enhance their experience.
You could encourage your child to value the importance of English and Mathematics and to continue to develop these skills. You can also encourage them to develop new interests by taking part in different activities.
From time to time we celebrate various achievements and festivals, and you can support your child by attending these celebration events. We will also invite you to College to give you regular reports on your child’s welfare and progress on their course. We will provide you with frequent updates about your child’s achievements and reports to help track their progress and keep you informed. We would like you to review these reports.
If you are not happy with the level of achievement and progress of your child, we would be delighted to talk things through with you. We welcome your views on how we can work better together to improve the quality of education.
We invite you to support your child to make the most of their time while studying at Sandwell College.
