To develop an informative and constructive procedure for reporting to parents
To develop an informative and constructive procedure for reporting to parents.
Evidence and reflection
This activity must be tailored to circumstances. Discuss with appropriate colleagues the aims and scope of a reporting exercise. If you are a student teacher, you might want to limit it to reflect a project which you have completed, or build it into an end-of-term open day.
Consider the following questions:
- How can you best provide information to parents?
- How can you involve the children?
- How can you elicit information and support from parents?
Evaluate your reporting procedure. Did you find consumerist or partnership expectations from parents? How did the children benefit? What will you do when your next opportunity arises?
