From Standards website on 'managing intevention programmes': "It is important that parents/carers are contacted before the programme starts, and kept informed throughout." It is very pleasing to see that Teaching...Big! has covered this base. I see on the official TB website that parents are invited to: 1. leave notes in reading / homework diaries constantly commenting on teaching methods and how appropriate they find the TB home readers 2. invited in to the parents course entitled 'Teabagging at Home' 3. The 'TB sticking my oar in' annual survey that goes home to parents. Well done to the management at Teaching...Big! It can't be long before the official acknowledgements and awards start rolling in.
