Straightforward Tips on Making the Parent-School Relationship Work for You

Many schools are either about to have their parent evenings or have just had them. The parent-school relationship is a vital relationship for us as parents. For the next 2 days, we will share some tips on making this necessary relationship work for all parents.

Day 1 Tip

Don’t be afraid to speak up:
Good teachers want a positive line of communication with parents and carers so that pupils are supported beyond the classroom. Remember, you have a shared interest in helping your child to thrive in school.
