Parent Workshops

Teaching staff at SS Simon and Jude CE Primary School are really excited to be delivering parent workshops again this year in order to increase parental involvement.

What is parental involvement?
Most children have two main educators in their lives – their parents and their teachers. Parents are the prime educators until the child attends an early years setting or starts school and they remain a major influence on their children’s learning throughout school and beyond. The school and parents both have crucial roles to play which is why school aims to involve parents in the life of school as much as possible.

School aims to achieve this in a range of ways:

  • carefully planned parent workshops
  • parent conference evenings
  • invitations to different events in school i.e. stay and play; musical proms afternoon; children’s performances;  competitions; entry and exit points linked to the curriculum etc
  • open door policy to discuss any concerns
  • annual reports
  • parent letters / telephone calls / text messages / emails
  • supporting home learning

Early Years

This year the Early Years team are delivering a range of parent workshops focusing on the following:

  • Autumn 1: Communication and Language
  • Autumn 2: Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development
  • Spring 1: Literacy
  • Spring 2: Mathematics
  • Summer 1: Understanding of the world
  • Summer 2: Expressive Art and Design

In order to ensure we reach as many parents as possible we have added links to the presentations used within the parent workshops.

We are also hosting a range of other workshops in order to share what is happening in school with our parents.
