The partnership between home and school is absolutely vital. Colegio Gran Bretaña operates an “open door” policy and aims to work closely with parents while their child is at our school. Regular communication with parents is an important feature of school life. Parents are always welcome to come into school. However, parents must not enter the classroom while lessons are in progress, except by invitation of the teacher. Formal parent-teacher consultations are held during the school year, according to the school calendar. Additionally, parents can ask at any time for an appointment with their child’s teachers or the Director by directly contacting the person, by making an appointment through the office or through Phidias, the school’s communication system.
The school is very happy for parent volunteers to help with such things as helping with reading; assisting in the school library; helping with class assemblies, shows, exhibitions and special celebration days. There are many other possibilities for getting involved such as making part of the different school committees such as Food, Values, Charity, Sustainability, Prevention and Emergency.
