South Lanarkshire Council recognises the importance of parents as partners in the education of their child and has published a strategy entitled, ‘Making a difference – working together to support children’s learning’. This is available from the Council’s website: www.southlanarkshire.gov.uk
Parents, carers and family members are by far the most important influences on children’s lives. Children between the ages of 5 and 16 spend only 15% of their time in school! Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s learning, children do better at school and throughout life. Parental involvement can take different forms but we hope you share the same aims and agree that by working together we can be partners in supporting children’s learning.
As parents/carers we want you to be:
All parents of children at school are automatically members of the Parent Forum and are entitled to have a say in what happens at the school.
