Parental involvement is key at Paget Primary
In keeping with its goal to ensure parents are involved in every aspect of their child’s school life, Paget Primary held a Curriculum Night. A presentation was given on the Bermuda Curriculum and the areas it covers. Parents were also offered suggestions on how they can facilitate student success. The night was well attended by the parents and teachers alike. It was a great evening and thoroughly enjoyed by all!
Parental Involvement in Education
Research has demonstrated that when children know that there is at least one responsible adult who demonstrates tangible interest in their school life, their performance, behaviour and self-esteem grow.
Parental involvement in your child's education can mean:
- Reading to your child
- Checking homework every night
- Discussing your child's progress with teachers
- Limiting TV viewing on school nights
It can also mean being a positive role model:
- Being respectful and expect the same from your children
- Being supportive of your child's school
- Remaining calm
- Using good manners
- Attending school meetings and functions
- Calling the teacher to check on the child's progress
