Year 5 undertook an ambitious project in Design and Technology wherein they planned and made their own unique soft toys. The pupils designed their toy, thinking carefully about the materials they would need and use and then used sewing skills to create their masterpieces. pic.twitter.com/y6v7WE0op9

Parents offer expertise to new school

Parents offer expertise to new school

Posted: 13th February 2019

Parents at our growing school are helping to provide a wealth of opportunities for children.

With Magna Carta Primary Academy in just its third year, parents are stepping forward and offering their expertise.

One parent who is a music teacher is giving pupils singing lessons, while another parent and grandparent wrote and co-ordinated the school’s nativity and carol concerts. Another, who is an architect, is looking to enter a career as an art teacher and so is volunteering with Year 1 and 2 and while the school recruits more lunchtime assistants, a parent has been filling the role.

Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “It is through our parents that we are making things happen. We have parents who respond to our needs. They are really incredible.

“As a new, small school, we do not have a specialist art teacher, so to have a parent come in and support with the teaching of art is wonderful. I am all for having specialists teach our pupils.”

Parents are so involved with the school, a special email address has been set up purely for them to submit their ideas to the headteacher.

Mr Solomonides said: “If our parents have an idea, we want to hear it.

“I would never say this is my school; we are just caretakers. This is the children’s school and everyone works together to give them the best education and the best experiences possible. We would be missing a trick if we did not include parents as they are the first and most important teacher a child has. We may be experts in the curriculum, but they are the experts when it comes to their children.”
