Running schools without the parents is unthinkable…Parents – in child-led, inquiry-based and Reggio Inspired schools – are a part of their development rather than just “customers” who drop off their children to professionals who make all the decisions.Södergren and Wiking (2009, p.15),
We believe establishing, sustaining, and developing quality, diverse, and affordable education is a shared responsibility between the school’s leadership / staff team, the child, their parent-carers and the wider community. Research shows that where parent-carers are prepared to commit, co-learn, and contribute towards their child’s education, those children are more motivated (Okeke 2014).
As a leadership, and teaching staff, we want to be intentional about developing genuine, meaningful, and mutually beneficial relationships with our children’s parent-carers – and the diverse communities they represent – by prioritising practices, rhythms, and ‘ways of being’ that accommodate, celebrate and promote relationships that are welcoming, inclusive and life-enriching for all.
