In the Steiner Academy Frome we recognise that parents are important partners in the education of the children. The teaching method facilitates a relation of trust and mutual understanding with your child's class teacher, regarding their development and the school's expectations of them.
Our school will seek to develop a strong sense of community where active involvement of parents is the norm. Parents will be able to engage with each other and the school through a balance of practical work and formal meetings and there will be many ways in which parents can help.
Parental involvement is also a priority because:
- where children see their parents as part of the school, this models co-operation and is very beneficial to the child’s sense of belonging and understanding of social responsibility
- It provides a route for parents to get involved in the community, and to meet other parents
- it gives parents a sense of “ownership” of the school
- tasks done by parents are task done with love and care, which contributes to the school’s special atmosphere
The Parent Handbook is a guide to lots of information about the school, the procedures and the team. We hope you will find it useful . View a copy here
