Hello all, this is my first post on here. I am a long time reader though. I just wanted to know how involved the parents are in your school? In my school we have parent helpers for virtually everything... I have 6 mums in total who are in my classroom throughout each week, listening to 1:1 readers at the back. We did swimming last year for a whole term and we took at least 4 parents each week to make up the ratios! (3 members of school staff and the rest parents for a 60 child outing!). I'm just wondering what other schools do... Do you have a policy on parents in the school? The biggest issue I have is that they are in my classroom and are obviously VERY keen to see what I'm actually teaching and what I'm like etc. This is quite off-putting at times I have to say. What do you think?
