Responsibilities for learning at home

Learning from home responsibilities

We all have responsibilities to ensure learning from home is a success.

Parents and carers

Parents and carers are asked to provide support for your children by

  • establishing routines and expectations
  • setting aside a space for your child to work in
  • monitoring communications from your child’s teachers
  • beginning and ending each day by asking about your child’s learning
  • taking an active role in helping your children with their learning
  • encouraging physical activity and/or exercise
  • remembering that your child might be stressed or worried during this time
  • monitoring how much time your child is spending online
  • keeping your children social, but setting rules around their social media interactions.


Student responsibilities, which can be adjusted by age, are to:

  • establishing and/or following a daily routine for learning
  • working in the safe, comfortable, quiet space in their home that has been set aside for them
  • regularly monitoring digital platforms and communication to check for announcements and feedback from teachers
  • completing tasks honestly and doing their best work
  • doing their best to meet timelines, commitments, and due dates
  • communicating with their teachers if they cannot meet deadlines or require additional  support
  • collaborating and supporting classmates in their learning
  • complying with the department’s Student use of digital devices and online services policy
  • communicating with school staff as different needs arise.
