Parental engagement has been a motivating force behind our education system from the outset and remains essential to the culture of Focus schools.
From years 3 through to 13 parents play an active part in supporting their child’s learning.
Many parents have direct input at the school, providing background assistance to operational staff and sometimes in supporting the teachers in providing pastoral care and motivation for the students. In any Focus school you may expect to find parents involved in:
- Classroom support
- School office
- Educational visits
- Extra-curricular events and activities
- Fundraising events
- Lunch-time supervision
There are strong links between parents and teachers with regular feedback and communication through meetings, school reports and student planners.
