Parental Involvement

 

At Trinity All Saints we value

the interest and time parents spend helping

their children and the school as a whole.

We are working continually to improve

the breadth of opportunities

available to our children.

 

Parental Involvement is about 

 Parents………

  • Having positive parenting skills in terms of love, kindness, generosity, being responsive, supportive, and consistent, providing opportunities and taking an interest in children.    
  • It is about talking with and listening to children, helping with homework and discussing school.
  • Finding out more about what and how children learn in school so that parents have clearer understanding of how to help their child at home.

  • Creating opportunities for learning in and amongst everyday life, when getting to school by bus, on foot, or by car, shopping in a supermarket, cooking a meal, eating together, cleaning, washing etc.

  • Spending quality time together playing a game, playing with toys, going to the park, kicking a ball about, visiting places of interest, going for a walk.

  • Sharing experiences which can be enjoyed together.

  • Meeting the physical needs of the children in terms of ensuring they get good nights sleep, eat breakfast, supporting children in getting ready for school, organising and monitoring a child’s time.

 

The Benefits of Parental Involvement

For Children:

  • Increased support for learning

  • Improved confidence

  • Raised self-esteem

  • Higher motivation

  • Raised aspirations

  • Reduced absenteeism

  • Improved behaviour/more positive attitude

  • Greater success/achievement

For Parents:

 

  • Parents have/or develop positive attitudes towards school.
  • Parents attach greater importance to the value of children’s learning and education.
  • Parents become increasingly confident and are able to support and extend their child’s learning.
  • Support and advice for parents to develop their own learning and skills.

For School:

  • When similar schools are compared, those with strong home-school links have consistently fewer problems related to pupil work and behaviour.

Schools that work well with parents, share information and tackle misunder­standing and problems at an early stage; celebrate improved levels of achievement, enjoy positive pupil attitudes and behaviour.
