Working with Parents

At LIA we value the close working relationship we have between home and school.

We work with parents to create an inclusive whole-school learning environment. We all know that parents, carers and families are the most important influences in children’s’ lives. Parents who play a supportive role in their children’s learning make a huge difference to their achievement, behaviour and attitudes. When parents and school work together, children do well. The better the information that we as a school can provide parents with, the more they can support both the school and their children in learning. We are working to make this even better.

Shared social events help to build stronger relationships, so we would like to encourage parents to be actively involved with the school. We have a number of parents helping in the classrooms and helping with school visits, fundraising and reading.

Here are just some of the many ways we include our parents in school life;

  • Weekly ‘Stay and Play’ sessions in the Early Years classrooms.
  • Monthly Parent Coffee Mornings with the Head Teacher.
  • Termly whole-school newsletters.
  • Parent Governors on the school Governing Body.
  • Regular reports on how well your child is doing.
  • Parent Workshops- offering advice on how you can help your child to improve further.
  • Weekly emails informing parents about attendance figures as part of our ‘Every Day Counts’ Attendance Strategy.

Our teachers are dedicated to giving your child the very best education and therefore they develop positive relationships with families.

Please come and talk to us if there is anything you wish to know more about or if your child is experiencing problems. We would much prefer to sort out minor difficulties before they develop into serious problems. Telephone us, write us a note or come into school and we will always do our best to help.
