IS Primary Updates

Issue 36: 15/9/2023 From the Principal

Parent Workshops

This half term, we have parent workshops to help you learn further about teaching and learning in the IEYC and IPC. We will demonstrate and explain each part of the process of the IEYC and IPC from the Entry Point to the Exit Point and how students learn how to be a learner. We will cover how IPC assessment strategies and systems are used within our classrooms by students and teachers. In addition, we will explain how we use a range of classroom approaches with the IEYC and IPC.

Would you like to be a Class or Year Group Parent in IS Primary FIS?

Each year we ask that each class or year group, depending on the age of the students, has one Class or Year Group Parent. If you are interested, please email Marina Chong, our IS Primary Secretary, directly by Friday, 29th September,

The role of class or year group parent is primarily to help the teacher organise parents for class activities – it can vary a lot from class to class but could include setting up a rota for a regular activity, such as swimming lessons, to one-off volunteer support such as school trips or props needed for a school performance. The teacher remains the main point of contact for class or homework-related queries, and issues relating to school policy or issues for individual students. But one of the joys of being a class or year group parent is getting to know the children and their parents, so be prepared for some “left field’ requests!
