Connection with school community

Parents and families (…)

Here is another example of an engaging practice that, from a professional experience, fosters students’ SCHOOL ENGAGEMENT. By school engagement we mean students’ observable participation in school activities, sense of belonging to classmates and teachers, and valuing success in school-related goals.

Name of the practice: Connection with the whole school community, especially the family of each student

It is implemented by: Teachers and technicians

It is directed at students aged: 6-8

Target group: Class-centred

Main subjects involved: Cross-curricular

ICT involvement:  yes

Description of the practice: Throughout the school year, the whole school community and family are part of all the activities developed at school. In all activities the emotional well-being is fundamental for the learning process. Activities are prepared according to the needs and interests of the students.

Parents and families are invited for class presentations, a book reading, a workshop and others. There is also a moment when parents come to share/present a personal skill and teach the kids, for example, a craft, art, or other kind of knowledge related to the parents job. The educational community has a good working and personal relationship and there is also a good relationship between all stakeholders.
