St Michael's Church of England Primary School

Enabling every child to flourish in their potential as a child of God.

How Parents can be Involved

There are many ways in which parents and carers can support the work of the school. Most importantly you really help us when you support your child in coming to school on time and ready to learn each day. You help when you discuss with your child the work that they are involved in and when you follow it up at home. Research shows that children learn more successfully when their parents and carers are interested in what they learn at school.

There is always lots of learning that you can do at home to help children – reading to them, hearing them read, discussing books, taking them to the local library, helping them to learn their tables, to understand money and change, tell the time and by playing educational games such as scrabble.

We welcome parents to volunteer to come and do some reading with children in school, but we ask that you commit yourself to a regular time slot so that we can plan for and rely upon your coming. Please let us know if you would like to help us. All adults who regularly work in school are subject to full police and Disclosure and Barring Service checks (DBS clearance), which the school will organise.
