COMMUNICATING WITH PARENTS
At Al Waha we believe in working in close partnership with parents to ensure that students receive the maximum care and attention in academic work as well as in developing well-adjusted personalities. Regular review of students’ notebooks and a daily check on the homework diaries of the children by parents are the most rudimentary and effective tools of primary communication, and we, at the school encourage parents to use these means widely. The comments of teachers regarding the correction of children’s work and brief explanatory notes in their homework diaries should serve to apprise parents of their wards’ academic status on a day-to-day basis. Teachers are also expected to keep parents regularly informed as and when required.
Feedback on children’s academic and social progress from all the subject/form teachers is available through Parent Teacher Consultation Meetings that are held once every term, and twice in a full academic session.
The formation and functioning of the Parents Advisory Council in the last few years has done much to advance the goal of improved communication between home and school. Reliable, timely and valuable feedback through the members of the Council helps the school to raise the educational standards and improve student achievement by resolving common issues and concerns.
In case of a special concern arising from any aspect of the child’s school life that the school deems necessary to communicate to parents, a meeting with the latter will be set up through prior appointment and with the approval of the concerned sectional head. On the other hand, parents are also welcome to bring any such problems/concerns to the notice of the management through a direct meeting with a subject teacher, class teacher or/and indeed even the Director fixed by prior appointment made through the office. In the best interest of the child, it is not advisable to defer or to ignore any issue that requires early intervention.
