However even simple factors such as giving specific rather than general praise, showing interest in things their child shows interest in and establishing routines that promote health, well being and regular study still do make a difference in the way that children view school and learning and the value they hold to their working relationship with teachers. Parents can help the school and their children develop is supporting homework expectations attending open days and parents evenings. Homework is set by teachers when they feel it necessary to check the understanding of what was taught in the lesson, or to expand their knowledge further.

Plenty of researches and studies have shown the positive effects that are impacted on the child’s achievement when parental involvement is seen in the child’s education (Gordon & Browne 2011).

Late finishers are a little easier to address. Arends suggests that teacher’s should let these students have extra time on assignments either after school with teacher supervision, or at home for homework.
Another example would be teachers helping children appreciate being different. EX: Billy’s teacher could have the class during circle time tell each other one thing that makes them unique. (Such as glasses, a freckle, painted fingernails, or a hat) By doing this it shows the children that they are ALL different from one another and should have confidence in themselves. Finally, the teacher could help the children feel happy and confident about their creativity.

While children are at school, practitioners act in â€ ̃loco parentisâ€TM while their parents are away. As part of their legal and professional obligations, practitioners hold positions of trust and a duty of care to the children in their school, and therefore should always act in their best interests and ensure their safety.
