A Partnership Approach

A Partnership Approach      

         

We recognise that families have a vital role to play in supporting children’s education.  A close partnership with the family is central to our approach.  It is essential in building both children’s communication skills and self esteem.  We are passionate about working in partnership with you, as parents.  We understand that by the very nature of the provision, face-to-face contact is not always possible.  The majority of our children come to school in taxis supported by an escort.  As such we communicate openly with parents through home school diaries as well as by phone.  We actively encourage and welcome parents to come in and meet with us as regularly as possible.
 

We aim to foster an atmosphere of trust and cooperation with families by:
 

  • involving parents at every stage of their child’s support,
  • valuing their contribution in decision making and the on-going support of their child,
  • offering consultations at least three times a year, twice a year formally at parent interview, once a year through Annual Review meetings and informally as required. Additionally parents are always welcome to talk to staff on the phone and through e-mail or make additional appointments for meetings at any time within the year,
  • recording any concerns expressed by the parents and acting upon them accordingly.
