Parental engagement

You can play an active role in your child’s education

As a parent, it is only natural that you will want to take an active role in your child’s education.  At AIS, we actively encourage parents to engage with their child’s learning and are leading the way by becoming the first school to introduce a parental engagement strategy into all our schools.

What does the research say?

Research has shown that the single biggest reason a child does well at school is the support of parents who take a real, active and consistent interest in their child’s education at home. The research suggests that a parent who is active and consistently engaged in their child’s learning can add the equivalent of two to three years of additional education over their school career. This is precisely why we are so keen to promote the importance of parental engagement.

Every parent has something to offer

Conversation is at the heart of positive parental engagement. It is not necessarily about sitting with your child and helping them with their homework. Every parent, regardless of their culture, language or experience, can talk to their child and show an interest in their learning. By asking questions, listening and encouraging you child with praise and direction, you can reinforce learning and become an active partner in the educational process.


AIS Parental Engagement Program

We believe passionately in helping all of our students reach their utmost potential, which is why we have introduced the AIS Parental Engagement Program into our school. This provides opportunities for parents to engage with their child’s learning and develop a better understanding of engagement strategies and their child’s learning needs.

AIS school has developed its own engagement program to suit the particular needs of our community. However, certain basics are expected from our AIS school.

This includes:

  • Recognizing the central role of parents in the teaching and learning and process;
  • Informing parents of student study programs in advance so they can offer support where necessary;
  • Providing the tools, resources and guidance parents need to support their child’s learning;
  • Receiving a minimum amount of face-to-face contact with teachers during the school year;
  • The creation of a parents’ association to help the school spread best practices to all parents.
