Parenting

At Our Lady & St. Gerard's we value the support of our parent community.  

We believe that our pupils benefit greatly from the collaboration between school and home.   Children have two main educators in their lives, their parents and their teachers.  Both have crucial roles to play and the impact of learning is greater if we work together with shared aims.  We want to make our school a welcoming place for parents with an ethos based on mutual trust and respect.

 

Parental involvement in our school can be divided into two strands:

  • Parental involvement in the life of the school.
  • Parental support for the individual child at home and in school.

 

To ensure that communication between home and school is effective, we have our school website, our Twitter feed, our weekly newsletter and our Phone app.  We also use Parent Pay for payments and bookings.

 

  

 

Walk to School

Keeping active is important at any time but during Lockdown, when our activities may be limited, we should try to include exercise into our daily routines.  Please see the information via the link below, which contains a local area map and safety information which is relevant to the pandemic.
