Working in Partnership
Good parenting and high quality learning together provide the foundation children need to be successful. Parents play a major role in fostering good attitudes to learning, developing language skills and promoting good behaviour.
At Downsbrook Primary School we make every effort to involve parents in the learning and development of their child at every stage and in a variety of ways. We value the vital partnership between parents, carers and teachers and aim to take account of the wishes, feelings and views of those involved with your child’s development.
We encourage parents and carers to play an active part in their children’s education. Some parents assist in after school clubs and activities, whilst others come in to help children read or help supervise school trips and visits.
We send home a fortnightly newsletter, hold welcome meetings for new parents, invite parents in for Maths and English mornings and have three parent/teacher meetings during the year. We have an open door policy for parents to come in and discuss any ideas or concerns that you may have.
In order to promote effective partnerships we ask that all parents and pupils sign our Home/School Agreement which clearly shows how we can work together effectively to support your child.
