The highest quality education is most easily provided when parents and teachers work together. This is the reason for encouraging parental involvement at Baines’. Parents are kept informed about their child’s progress through three open evenings each year, annual reports and informal contact. We also run a range of information meetings throughout the year. If you require information at any other time you need only ask.
We have a small Parents’ Library of books in our entrance foyer. Please feel free to browse through them at any time. If you would like to borrow one you will be asked to sign for it and return it in two to three weeks time.
We have a well-established P.T.F.A. which works hard to raise money to buy much needed items for school and organises social events for those who are interested.
We welcome parents into the school to help with such things as reading, general classroom work or perhaps to share a skill or interest. Some parents may feel unable to make a regular commitment but assist with such things as trips, activities, sports day, school fairs etc, whatever you feel you can offer is much appreciated
All parents or other volunteers who help in school are cleared under the national regulations, CRB – Criminal Background clearance.
