What is the Home School Community Liaison Scheme?
The Home School Community Liaison Scheme is a very positive programme. It is designed to work with and support the adults in our student’s lives to help improve educational outcomes. The main aim of the scheme is to maximize the participation of students and parents in the learning process as a whole.
Why do we need the Home School Community Liaison Scheme?
School is an exciting, challenging, rewarding but sometimes difficult experience. Not only for the students but also for the parents.
Children and parents can be supported by this scheme so that each child can come to school and reach their fullest potential in the most holistic way possible.
How does the Home School Community Liaison Scheme work?
The scheme recognizes the parents as the primary educators of their children and is constantly looking for ways to support parents in this important role.
Home visits- this is an excellent way of checking in with parents and listening to their views and concerns. Caoimhe also connects with parents in the school, over the phone, email, and whatsapp.
Free classes and courses for parents– These can range from hobbies and interests to classes and courses on parenting and child development. They will be fun, inclusive and open to all! Courses are mostly held in the school and are a great way to learn new skills, meet other people and share in the life and work of the school alongside their children.
This service is discrete and judgement free. It solely focuses on supporting the needs of the children enrolled in our school and their family.
