“Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s learning, children do better at school and throughout life.”
The Scottish Schools Act (Parental Involvement) Act 2006
We are very keen for parents to be involved in the school. We work to forge a bond between home and school from the time your child enrols in P1 and foster this bond by encouraging an open relationship between parents and staff.
There are three broad areas in which you can be involved in your child’s learning and the work of the school.
Learning at Home- the school will provide you with information about what your child is learning and how you can best support at home. This may be through class teacher communication, parent evenings, curriculum sessions, newsletters or via leaflets.
Home/School Partnership- Parents are welcomed into Abernyte School as part of the team who provide the best possible learning opportunities for their children. Parents are involved on a regular basis accompanying trips, giving talks, supporting extracurricular clubs, completing audits and surveys, sharing ideas, suggestions and concerns with us.
Parental representation- Every parent is automatically a member of the Parent Forum at Abernyte School. You will be asked to express your views on matters affecting the education of your child. You may be asked to complete questionnaires and surveys, participate in informal chats with the Headteacher or more formal evaluation of the school improvement agenda. A Parent Council is elected from the Parent Forum at the start of every school year. This works in partnership with the school to promote parental involvement and quality learning experiences for the children.
We want all parents to experience a welcoming environment and for parents to feel that they can raise any queries without hesitation.
The Abernyte School Parent Council was established by the Abernyte School Parent Forum.
