Parents and carers are actively encouraged to be participants in their child’s education. Information is shared in newsletters, personal letters, phone calls and meetings throughout the school year.
The school has a dedicated Outreach HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant) who works with parents, carers and outside agencies to try and ensure that together, we are able to deliver the best outcomes for children and families across our school. Engaging with parents/carers is a key focus for our school at present and we are determined to encourage all groups within our diverse school community to work with staff to further develop Bonneville’s many strengths. A wide variety of events are hosted in school each term. These include:
- Coffee mornings
- Parent Workshops such as e-safety information for adults
- Parent learning centres-helping adults develop their own skills in core areas such as literacy or maths or ICT
- Parent/ children workshops- art and crafts etc
Our Outreach HLTA is able to meet confidentially with parents and signpost outside agencies or support groups who are able to help families in a variety of different circumstances. This could be Citizens Advice , Contact a Family or many other organisations with knowledge and expertise in a specific area. We may also be able to refer a child or family to the MAT (Multi Agency Team) in Lambeth who can provide more targeted support for specific issues, such as involvement of a family support worker.
We want to ensure that parents and carers feel welcome to come into school and ask for support if necessary. If you would like to make an appointment to speak with our Outreach HLTA, please contact the school office who can make the necessary arrangements.
