At Moncreiffe Primary we want parents to play an active role in their children’s education and work in partnership with us to provide the right environment for young people to gain the knowledge and skills for life. When parents are involved in their children’s education, children do better.
We recognise that parents have a wide variety of experience, expertise and interests that can actively inform and benefit the school’s policies and working practices, and we want parents to feel encouraged to share these skills.
Parents and carers can get involved in a number of ways:
· Parent Council – a forum for parents to discuss all aspects of school life with teaching staff and other parents. Meetings are open to all parents and carers and anyone can raise an agenda item ahead of the meeting or on the night.
· Friends of Moncreiffe – a parent-led group that organises fundraising events to benefit all pupils through new equipment and trips to enhance learning experiences and prizes to celebrate achievements.
· Sharing skills and expertise – from working in class on specific projects to organising resources or leading clubs. Please contact us if you have a skill or time you are willing to share with the school.
More information on parent involvement can be found in the School Handbook.
