At Soho Parish one of our key values is 'Family' and we ensure we work in partnership with parents and support families. Parents are a child's first and most important educator and consequently we aim to draw on parents' knowledge of their child to help inform us of their next steps.
We regularly welcome parents' help in class, either as volunteer readers, lunch helpers or to share their own knowledge of a topic with our children - recent parent demonstrations have included sushi-making, Spanish pronunciation (pictured), DJing and even a whole mariachi band!
Other ways to get involved include accompanying school trips, taking part in sports day and helping with fundraising through our Parent Staff Association.

Communication with teachers
All teachers are available in the playground every day before and after school to discuss and issues, learning needs or other important information about children in their class. Parents can also contact them via direct email (using the format email@example.com)
Our Learning Mentor Sharon is also available to offer advice and support with emotional and pastoral needs 3 days a week (see Staff information for which days).
In Reception class, parents are regularly invited to contribute to ongoing assessment of their child and to feed in to a curriculum designed around their needs and interests. Further up the school, we maintain open communication with parents about their child. Topic maps and information about the curriculum is sent home in a letter each half term (every six weeks) so that parents can support their child with what they are learning in class.
