Home School Partnerships

We are very fortunate to have a supportive and friendly parent body. Our parents recognise that educating children is a process that involves partnership between parents, class teachers and the school community. We welcome and encourage parents/carers to participate fully in the life of our school.

Parent Information

At Gallions we know how important it is to feel ready and prepared for starting school, whether you are starting in the Early Years or have transferred to Gallions from somewhere else. We want children and families to feel as supported and prepared as possible which is why we have put together these useful welcome packs with everything you could need to be ready and raring to go for life at Gallions.

Parent Workshops

At Gallions Primary, we hold regular parent workshops to keep parents informed and involve parents in our school as much as possible. We always put a copy of the slides onto our website in case parents are unable to attend and would like to view them at a later stage. The presentations are in PDF format so they can be viewed on almost any device. The table below also shares this terms parents workshops. We hope to see you there! All workshops take place on a Friday at 8.45am in our training room.

Home School Agreement

Research has consistently shown that active parental interest makes a great deal of difference to how well children do at school. Parents can help more effectively if they know what the school is trying to achieve and what they can do to offer support. Home-school agreements provide a framework for the development of such a partnership. We believe that in order to improve and be the best school we can, it is important that we all work in partnership.

Our home school agreement can be accessed here.

Parental help in School

We are always grateful to those parents who come into school and help. All our teachers are always on the look out for willing volunteers to hear readers!

If you feel that you have a particular talent or area of expertise then we would love to hear from you. Please complete this google form and email the school office to let us know.
