Working with Parents

Parents are given feedback of their child’s progress at the end of each term through teacher-parent meetings where they are able to peruse through their child’s learning journey. This is an opportunity for teachers to learn more about the shakhsiyah and needs of each child under their care. Children also discuss termly targets with their teachers and receive targets cards to help them move forward. Parents also receive an annual report with detailed narrative evaluations.
