Parental Involvement

At Ardler Primary School, parental involvement is welcomed and recognised as being essential in developing a strong partnership between parents and schools.  We communicate regularly through our Class Dojo. Twitter and GLOW provide parents with a 21st Century means of keeping up to date with what is happening in school and with their children's learning. We also produce a termly newsletter. All methods provide an ideal platform to keep parents/carers informed of on-going school events. We also text parents to remind them of any events which are happening in school or nursery.

Throughout the school year we have class assemblies, shared start and open afternoons and parents/carers are invited into the school to see the work their children are doing. We have a number of parents who regularly volunteer to assist in educational excursions but we are always in need of your support.

Our very supportive Parent Council hold regular meetings and organise events throughout the year eg. Christmas Disco and Santa's Postbox. A parents' group have a weekly 'drop in' to help the school in practical ways. This ranges from gardening and helping with the Nursery library to supporting pupils in their learning eg. mental maths.

Research has shown that children do better if their parents are involved in their education. Whatever that sphere of involvement may be it is greatly appreciated and welcomed.
