Parental Engagement 

At St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School, we recognise each child as an individual, and aim to give all children every opportunity to realise their full potential.  We believe that a close partnership between the school, parents and the child is essential if we are to achieve this aim.

Thank you to parents who have attended our meet the teacher sessions.


How to help your child at school


Children can achieve well at school when their family and friends take an interest in their school and schoolwork. Getting involved in your child's education, even in the simplest way, shows that you care about their school life.  Often, the more supported a child feels at home, the more effectively she or he will learn at school. Whatever your lifestyle, or family situation, it is never to soon (or too late) to start helping a child develop a positive attitude towards learning.


If you are concerned about your child's learning, you may be unsure about how best to support them.  It's important to have a good line of communication between parent and teacher, with each of you seeing your roles as complementary and inclusive. You have the right to expect and ask for help. Sometimes things happen that make going to school difficult for your child. Common problems include falling out with friends, finding schoolwork too hard and being bullied, and tackling these early on makes all the difference.  You may be able to help them by:


  • Letting them know that you care and want to help
  • Asking if they can think of anything helpful that you could do.
  • Speaking to their teacher and ask what the school could do to help.
  • Encouraging them to join after-school club or activities.
  • Taking things slowly, one step at a time.
