………………………………. read all about it.
Wallyford Parents and Carers have created their own parent/carer room within the school – not only that – they have designed and created a break away space also.
The P1 parent/carer group who join their children for learning every Friday morning, asked for a designated meeting/gathering space in school.
A room was identified – volunteers then worked with Mrs Stratton and Jackie Dow, P2B Manager to create the space. Parents felt that it would be useful to have a break out space also – a space where they could gather as a bigger group for a book club or with young tots, as well as a place for parents and carers to meet in a bigger group as necessary.
They decorated and furnished both spaces during the week while their children were learning in class.
The result – two fantastic spaces for parents/carers created by parents/carers.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in this project.
I read a quote recently which sits so well with our school and with Curriculum for Excellence:
“Engaging with parents/carers has a significant impact on attitudes and student achievement.” Dylan William
