Home Preparation At High Cliff Academy we strongly believe in the importance of home-school partnership. About 80% of a child’s time is spent outside of school (evenings, weekends, holidays, etc.). Therefore, it’s paramount that parents and carers understand how they can support their children with their learning at home. Our Expectations of Parents / Carers We want you to: Send your child to school on time every day Respect term dates and times Support school behaviour expectations Make sure your child wears full school uniform Contact us immediately if there is a problem Show an interest in your child’s work, behaviour and progress Attend Academy events and workshops Read daily with your child Support your child with their home learning Home Learning Routines All children should endeavor to read every night with an adult or older sibling.
