Parents as Partners
At Lander Road we acknowledge the importance of parents being their child’s first educator and therefore value working in partnership with parents in order to develop strong, positive relationships with each and every family. Learning takes place across all seven areas of development through child-led and adult-led activities. We embrace parental involvement and love to see how excited the children are when talking about their school day. Thank you for all your positive comments placed on Evidence Me. We hope that the information and photographs we send you give you an insight into your child's school life. We also enjoy looking at the photographs that you send us as this helps us to build up a 'bigger picture' of how your child learns, their interests and the activities that they enjoy participating in outside of school.
