Parents and RPS

We place a strong emphasis on the partnership that exists between the home and the school in the education of your child and as such believe that the lines of communication between home and school must be fluid.

While nothing can replace face to face communication, when this is not possible our preferred means of communication is email. All staff have access to email and are expected to clear their emails each day.

The principal and associate principals have an open door policy and are happy to meet with parents. If a more formal meeting is required it is helpful to telephone the office for an appointment.


Reporting to Parents

Parents are always welcome to email staff to arrange an appointment to discuss their child's progress and achievement. Formal written reports are sent home twice each year in June and December and a three way conference involving the parents, the child and the teacher is also held in April each year.


Parents in the Classroom

Parents are welcome in the classroom and we appreciate the support of parents who are able to help. Scheduled and focused support is most beneficial. If you are keen to help in the classroom you will need to see the classroom teacher to make arrangements that will work for the needs of that particular classroom. In most instances it is not appropriate to bring pre-school children with you.


Parent Involvement

It is very much a part of school policy that parents should be involved in many aspects of school life. Parents may become involved in school life in a number of ways such as assisting in the library, helping with a road crossing duty, listening to reading or serving on the PTA.


Class Co-ordinators

Each year, every class is allocated a class co-ordinator who is a parent of a child in that class. They assist the PTA and the teachers in disseminating information and organising parent help for a variety of class and school activities.
