Positive parent-school communications is the hallmark of BenchMark. The manner in which the school communicates and interacts with parents has positively impacted the extent and quality of parents’ home involvement with their children’s learning. Parents also benefit from being involved in their children’s education by getting ideas from school on how to help and support their children, and by learning more about the school’s academic program and how it works.
Substantial evidence exists at the school to show that parent involvement has benefitted students, including raising their academic achievement. There are other advantages for children when parents become involved – namely, increased motivation for learning, improved behaviour, more regular attendance, and a more positive attitude about homework and school in general.
With the parental involvement, teachers are free to focus more on the task of teaching children. Also, by having more contact with parents, teachers learn more about students’ needs and home environment, which information they can apply toward better meeting those needs. Parents who are involved tend to have a more positive view of teachers, which results in improved teacher morale too.
BenchMark International school always uses the effective tools like WhatsApp groups, Google classrooms and other Social Media platforms to ensure effective parent interaction.
