Most parents would like to be more involved with their child’s learning, but it is sometimes difficult to know where to start. There are many ways you can participate, from joining the school’s parent-teacher association to helping out behind the scenes at school plays.
Teachers and parents meet at parent evenings to discuss how children are doing in class and in school generally. As a parent, it is important that you attend these evenings and participate as much as you can. You can contact the School Office for more information on dates and times at firstname.lastname@example.org
Parent-teacher associations or PTAs have no formal powers, but they ensure a good level of communication between parents and teachers and are highly beneficial. PTAs also often contribute to the social side of school life by organising fun events for parents, teachers and pupils alike. For more information on our PTA or to get involved contact Louise Landman.
All schools have a governing body which works together with the headteacher and senior management team to ensure the pupils get a good standard of education. With over 350,000 governor places in England, governors are the largest volunteer force in the country. In recent years, governors’ duties and responsibilities have increased considerably.
Parent governor representatives (PGRs) meanwhile represent the views of parents from their area to the local education authority. The roles of the governors and of PGRs are very different but both are important, and are excellent and rewarding ways to assist your child’s education.
Supporting your child academically, on the sports field, at activity clubs, or at school plays is a rewarding experience both for your child and yourself as a parent. Whilst it is an opportunity to encourage your child it is also an opportunity to meet other parents in the school. See the school calendar and get reminders sent to yourself on school events your child is partaking in.(Author: )
