At Duncraig Primary School, we understand that the relationship between the home and the school plays a very important part in a child’s education. In partnership with the school, parents play a critical role in their child’s educational experience, both academically and socially. Parents contribute much to their child’s development and are among the most important influences on how a child approaches their learning.
Teachers are responsible for the more formal aspects of children’s learning, and successful teaching builds on the home experiences of the child. This is most effective when there is an active partnership with parents. Two-way communication is a critical factor in the partnership between parents and the school.
Where a partnership exists, it is easier for parents to feel confident about the teaching and learning taking place in the classroom. It is also easier to address any potential concerns and find suitable solutions to problems that may occur throughout a child’s educational journey.
School Communication Strategies
The following sections of the website explain the ways that we communicate with parents at Duncraig Primary School. We encourage all parents to access these strategies regularly to ensure you remain informed about your child’s educational journey. Parents should be aware that any other forms of communication may not be sanctioned by the school and could contain inaccurate information. Please contact your child’s teacher or the school administration if you have any queries. Where possible, your query will be responded to within 24 hours.
