We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.
St Paul of the Cross Catholic Primary School Dulwich Hill communicates regularly with parents through a fortnightly online newsletter and the Compass student information system and app. The app allows us to regularly update parents on upcoming events, snapshots of learning, parent information sessions and school reports and notes.
A whole school assembly is held every Tuesday where student achievement is recognised and celebrated. Parents are given opportunities throughout the year to visit classrooms, including a ‘meet the teacher night’ held at the beginning of the school year.
Parents are provided with opportunities to be actively involved in their child’s education by assisting on excursions, at sporting events, in school celebrations and fundraising events.
