Get involved with the "Parents of Westglade" (POW) - See our partnership page below for more details.
First and foremost, remember your help is vital to supporting your child on their educational journey. You are an expert on your child and the more interest you show the better progress they will make. Make yourself aware of their targets and ways they can improve in these areas. Listen to your children read and read to your children on a regular (if not daily) basis. Discuss their homework with them and offer support where you can. If you need ideas or help to support your child(ren) then please make direct contact with their class teacher. We know your children really well and are always keen to share additional ways you can support them.
Would you like to run a raffle, cake-sale, book sale or something similar to raise money for the school? Anything you can do to help is appreciated. Money raised can be used to buy items and games to be used at play-times and lunchtimes to give children a range of activities to choose from.
We always welcome additional adults in school to listen to children read. Equally our children love listening to stories. At Westglade we love to read, get involved!
Volunteer a skill
We like our children to have a range of experiences here at Westglade - just see our calendar under 'Parents' for lots of planned events. If we have any parents or people within the community who can offer experiences to our children then we would like to hear from you!
Perhaps you can volunteer your time in one of these areas...
Cooking, sewing (weaving, cross-stitch), art project, dance, creative writing and many others! Let us know if you have an interest to share.
Perhaps you have (or somebody you know has) an interesting job and can spare half a day to share your experiences with our children?
Such as... doctor, nurse, policeman, engineer, writer, caller on a child help line, psychologist, farmer, bee-keeper, builder, mechanic etc
- books (all age ranges are appreciated and any not needed in school can be sold at school fairs to raise money for school)
- games (for Golden Time, wet plays, our calming room)
- outside games/resources are also appreciated (skipping ropes, hoops - things children can use during play times and lunchtimes)
- creative art supplies (i.e. tissues paper, pipe cleaners, beads, beady eyes, wool, felt, paint etc)
