We see establishing, sustaining, and developing quality, diverse and accessible / affordable education as a shared responsibility between the school’s leadership and staff team, the child, and their parent-carers / the wider community. Research shows that where parent-carers are co-learning, committed and contributors to their child’s education, those children are more motivated (Okeke 2014).
Running schools without the parents is unthinkable…[in Reggio inspired schools, parents] 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),
As a leadership, and teaching staff, we will be intentional about developing genuine, meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with parent-carers, and the diverse communities represented in the school, by prioritising practices, rhythms, and ‘ways of being’ that accommodate, celebrate and promote relationships that are welcoming, inclusive and life-enriching for all.
If you are a parent-carer, we would encourage you to take a closer look at our ethos, values or habits, and, if you are interested to hear more about quality, diverse and affordable education in a child-led, inquiry-based and Reggio inspired school, feel free to arrange an appointment with us.
