Working in Partnership with Parents and Carers
We work in partnership with parents and carers to meet the needs of the children, both individually and as a group, and information is shared.
A successful partnership needs a two-way flow of information, knowledge and expertise. There are many ways of achieving this and effective practice will be determined by the skills and commitment of the practitioners to work with in partnership with each parent and carer in an appreciative and respectful way.
We aim to achieve this by:
- Providing a relaxed, informal environment which is welcoming to all parents and carers and which encourages active participation.
- Greeting all parents and carers by their proper or chosen name.
- Giving all parents and carers the opportunity to contribute to and participate in their child’s learning. Staff ensure that they talk with working parents and carers and seek, where possible, the support of translators and interpreters to ensure that all parents whatever language they speak are given equal access to information and equal opportunities to share their knowledge of their child.
