To support the community of Laxmi Global School as a thriving and successful school we must communicate effectively with each other, with our learners, with their parents and with other members of the wider school community. We need to ensure that communications between all members of the school community are clear, professional, timely and appropriate.
Communications with Parents/Guardians:
Social Networking Sites/Blogs etc
Staff will not communicate with parents or pupils via social networking sites (such as Facebook) or accept them as their “friends”. The exception to this rule is networks or blogs used in the safety of the LGS portal for the purpose of teaching and learning.
Written Reports/Grade Cards
Twice a year LGS will provide a detailed, full written report to each child’s parents on her / his progress in each subject. This report identifies areas of strength and areas for future development. Learners are also given the opportunity to comment on their own progress and parents are invited to make a similar comment. In addition, parents meet their child’s educator/s four times (end of each Term) during the academic year (twice in juniors) for a private consultation at Parents’ Evening. This gives them the opportunity to celebrate their child’s successes, and to support their child in areas where there is a particular need for improvement. We encourage parents to contact the school if any issues arise regarding their child’s progress or well-being.
Each learner is issued with two Interim Reports per year which gives grades for Achievement of Learning and Attitude to Learning.
The school prospectus contains a range of specified information to give parents a full picture of provision at our school. This is updated every year.
Public access documents
Curriculum Handbooks and other documents are updated on an annual basis and issued to parents. Copies of these, plus school policies, are available to parents on the school’s website.
The school website provides information about the school and an opportunity to promote the school to a wider audience. It also has areas for information for current Parents and prospective learners and their parents.
Open Days and Communication with other schools and outside agencies
Prior to learners joining LGS, (interested) prospective learners and their parents are invited to visit LGS to gain further information about the school, its staff members and Senior Management Team.
We recognize that children have diverse needs, and we are supported by various agencies and groups of professionals at Laxmi Global School and outside who keep us informed on better ways to meet these needs, so that children may participate more fully.
We recognize that children have a fundamental right to be protected from harm, that their protection is a shared responsibility, and that our school should provide a safe and secure environment.
