Parental involvement in school has a positive influence on children's learning. By working closely together, we can develop children's attitudes to learning and ensure that children achieve their full potential. Effective parental involvement provides teachers with a clearer understanding of children's home circumstances and personal achievements and increases parental understanding of what children are learning, how well they are achieving and how they can support learning in the home environment. Clear channels of communication will ensure that the school and parents can respond quickly and effectively to emerging issues and concerns.
This section aims to keep parents up-to-date with events in school, assist with child care needs and provide ideas on how parents can help out further, should they have the time.
