The school is a shared environment, which 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 school events and being involved in the day-to-day programmes of the school.
Parents are encouraged to share their skills, knowledge and experiences with the students of the College. This can be through regular school support or by attendance on school 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 class programmes, we ask that they commit to regular attendance. The College will provide appropriate training as required.
