|Parent School Partnership|
Parental Involvement at Edify School ranges from Reading together at Kindergarten ‘Read with me workshop’ to volunteering in classrooms as ‘Resource Parent’ , to getting involved when children are out on field trips. The benefits of Parental Involvement can be :
For parent better understanding of their Child’s school experience in order to build a closer parent-child bond.
For teacher Classroom & field trip support & better understanding of the child’s family roots.
For Students Increase in self confidence & self-esteem as they see their parent showing interest in their class activities. Children learn best when the significant adults in their lives – Parent, teacher and community members work together to encourage and support them. School alone cannot address all of the child’s developmental needs. Hence the meaningful involvement of parents support from the community is essential& staff to work together catering to an environment in which trust & mutual respect for each other can flourish. A student too gets a message of peace & begins to learn with ease when they see their parent & teachers engaged in a respectful manner for their progress. This is where 3C learner’s profile comes in & helps all concerned work on a common platform.
|Home Parent Teacher Meeting (HPTM)|
|Edify School firmly believes that the teacher’s role in the student’s life is not limited to the confines of the classroom. Twice a year teachers visit students’ residences to get a feel for their milieu and social background. This helps them in bond with the children and their families and helps in their interactions with the children. At Edify School students perceive their teachers as friends first and then as learning facilitators. This ensures a warm and friendly environment where students are at ease.|
|Parent Teacher Meeting (PTM)|
|Parent teacher meetings are held atleast thrice a year in which the teachers describe how the students perform and behave in the class & parents provide their perspective. The meetings are well planned and provide ample time for teachers to interact with every parent individually.|
