Being Independent

Encouraging Independence

At school we are always encouraging the children to be independent in whatever they are doing which would be fantastic and beneficial for you to continue to encourage at home.


Sometimes going from reliant to becoming independent can be a little tricky.

Some ideas to support your child to be independent    

We would say

Doing it together


Let’s do it together

Starting and asking them to finish it


I’ll start it, you can finish

Model doing it and then asking them to do it after.


I do it like this, you have a go.

Asking them to show you they are trying before you help.

When I see you have tried I will help you.
