A Norfolk high school received an intake of new pupils on Monday as more than 20 parents returned to the classroom.

Parents of year 7 pupils spent the day experiencing modern day teaching and learning practices at Methwold High School.

The “bring your parent to school” day was inspired by the success of a parent study day, initiated by the science department earlier this year, which helped the school post its best ever GCSE science results.

Sarah Turner, transition manager at Methwold High, said she decided to extend the parent interaction with year 7 children who recently started at the school.

“This is the first time our school has run a 'bring your parent to school' day, and I am delighted with the large numbers of parents who have wanted to take part. We are looking forward to running something very similar again in the future.

“It is evident that one of the keys to student achievement is in engaging parents with their child's learning. This means parents are better informed and better equipped to help support their children through their studies, which motivates students themselves,” she said.
