The College is a shared environment that includes community, parents, and teachers working together to enhance the experiences and education of the children at Discovery College. Research has shown that students perform at a higher level if their parents are involved in their education. This includes sharing their learning through discussion and homework, participating in College events, and being involved in the day-to-day programmes of the College.
Parents are encouraged to share their skills, knowledge, and experiences with the students of the College. This can be through regular College support or by attendance on College events and trips.
Parent helpers can give support to the College by assisting in the classroom, developing resources, or working in specific areas such as the library. Where parents assist in-class programmes, we ask that you commit to regular attendance. The College will provide appropriate training if required. Teachers will seek parent helpers at different times of the year and will communicate this to parents as needed.
