Parent Helpers

One of the great strengths of our school is gained through the support parents give. This happens in all sorts of ways throughout the year. A large number of parents are able to commit themselves to helping in a classroom on a regular basis and are most welcome.

We find that parents have many skills which can be used to benefit our pupils. In practice we find the majority of children appreciate mums, dads and grandparents working in a nearby class. Obviously we expect a caring attitude, confidentiality and an appreciation of the school’s values. Our parents enjoy the nature of the tasks they are given under the guidance of the class teacher. The system works well and parents, staff and most importantly, children, all gain hugely. Please let your child’s class teacher know if you could offer help in this way. The school provides a guide for parent helpers to help them get the most out of their time.
