Working in Partnership with your Child’s School with Dr Samantha Hornery
Working in partnership with your child’s school with Dr Samantha Hornery
You’re in this together!
You and your child’s teachers need to be working alongside each other throughout your child’s education to ensure your child can enjoy school, participate in school and finish school ready to take on their next adventure.
Many things will change throughout your child’s schooling – their teachers at least once a year, their school at least once – but what remains constant is you, their parent and holder of all the knowledge and history of your child’s successful experiences in learning.
In this workshop Samantha will provide practical strategies to help parents and schools work together in partnership, to divvy up the support and help each other help the child at the centre of this relationship.
