- How do current school practices help to keep you informed about the learning that your child is involved in and how you can be involved?
- Some parents have expressed how much learning has changed since they were in school. Do you understand these changes or do you feel welcome to find out more about how we teach in your child’s classroom?
- Formal parent consultation happens approximately every three years to ensure the school reflects the values and educational priorities of the community. Elected Board of Trustees members also provide input on the community’s behalf. Do you feel this is a sufficient level of community input into learning programmes?
- Parents are often invited to volunteer in the school to support learning activities. This is a great asset to the school. Are there ways in which the school could improve this involvement (include different parents, encourage more dads etc) without overusing community support?
