At Roxeth, we endeavour to provide a huge range of services and support to parents and carers in order to engage them in their child’s learning as well as develop their own skills. Parents and carers are always welcome and encouraged as often as possible to share special moments in the school life of their children.
Throughout your child’s time at Roxeth, you will have the opportunity to watch your child performing in assemblies, concerts and a yearly spectacular production. We also run a varied programme of workshops to help you to support your child’s learning. We believe that education works best when it is a three way process with the child, teacher and you as parents. As research shows, parent’s involvement in a child’s primary education has a significant effect on educational achievement for the rest of their lives.
Other than these events where parents share and understand the learning process of their child, there are specific courses that we run which are for parents to enhance their own life skills. In the past, there have been ESOL (English courses) that the school has been running. This year, after taking into consideration the requests by parents, we are providing Maths and ICT skills courses. In addition, there are other services such as 1:1 confidential appointments and referral schemes that we have for parents as well.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any ideas about the support you need to help your child and suggestions to strengthen our link even further. A parent suggestion box is kept at the Front Desk to give feedback and suggestions on how to improve various aspects of school life. You can also contact us on the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
