Home-School
Communication

Good communication between home and school is crucial to ensure that a student is getting the best from the School’s learning opportunities. We are committed to working closely with parents to provide a support system that helps our students thrive and succeed.

 
GOOD COMMUNICATION

Partnering With Parents For Students’ Success

Active and supportive family participation helps create a conducive atmosphere for students to develop confidence in their ability to learn. As such, we believe strongly in building relationships based on mutual trust and respect with students and parents, so that we can talk and share honestly about what is best to help students reach their full potential.

We are also committed to share information about students and our school with parents regularly, as this helps support the student’s learning progress.

The communication will take a variety of forms:

  • Parents – Teachers Conferences (by Year Groups, e.g. Year 7 PTC)
  • Academic Review Day (All Year Groups together)
  • Parent/Teacher Meetings (Private Meetings)
  • Term Reports loaded to Parent Portal
  • A weekly message from Form Tutor
  • Weekly Parent Bulletin
  • Parent Workshops

We have a 48-hour response policy regarding parent queries. If a parent needs to see the Principal or Head of School urgently, an appointment will be arranged by the next working day after the request is received.

 
GETTING THE BEST

Strengthening The School Community

We value our parents feedback on how to improve the school and we have several channels to engage with parents. The Principal runs a monthly Parent Focus Group, where she gathers views about how the school is doing and what needs to be improved. Any parent can join this group. A regular parent forum is held to discuss school issues. This is attended by Parent Representatives who are nominated by parents of students from each respective class.


HELPS CHILDREN THRIVE

Voice Of The Student Community

Students at our school are valued and respected. As such, students also have a say in the development of the school. Student feedback is primarily done through student surveys.


SUPPORT SYSTEM

Parent-School Partnership

At the beginning of each year, a Meet the Head Teacher Coffee Morning and a Meet the Teacher afternoon is held. Parents have the opportunity to visit their child's new classrooms and find out about the curriculum for their teachers.

Parent workshops are also held throughout the year to explain our approach to teaching and learning, and what we want to achieve with the students. We also have thematic sessions on topics to help parents support their child’s learning.
