|How can parents support their child’s progress in this subject?
Parents can encourage their child to be aware of what is going on in the world by reading newspapers and watching the news then discussing this with their child. Parents should also support their child with one hour’s independent study each week.
Students are encouraged to attend intervention sessions appropriate to their needs. Dates and times of these will be shared on an individual basis.
