    Give Help Early

    The early years are absolutely critical for how a

    person’s life turns out, and if you really want to

    make a difference to people’s lives, intervening

    early is KEY. That’s where governments should

    put their money. That is where their focus

    should be.

    of success in life.

    Guiding Principles for School-Home Partnership

    1.Students succeed when schools and parents work hand in hand to support students in learning self-management skills, taking responsibility and building resilience.

    2. Mutual respect and trust forms the strong foundation for positive engagement between schools and parents.

  • Developing good habits

    We want to nurture your child to be a self-directed learner with good habits and takes

    responsibility for his/her own learning

    How parents can partner us:

    Setup routines for your child at

    home and provide a conducive

    place for him to do his homework

    X Expect teachers to give daily updates on

    your child, or contact the teacher to

    check on things that your child needs to

    do e.g. spelling list, homework, etc.

    Encourage a reading habit, an

    active healthy lifestyle, and also

    control the use of social media,

    personal and gaming devices

    X Deliver your child’s forgotten items [e.g.

    water bottles, wallets, books, consent

    forms, etc.] to the school unless it is a

    medical emergency [e.g. Ventolin Inhaler,

    Insulin jab, etc.]

  • Developing good habits

    We want to nurture your child to be a self-directed learner with good habits and takes

    responsibility for his/her own learning

    How parents can partner us:

    Support your child in doing his

    homework e.g. by reminding him to

    check his handbook. Let him attempts

    the homework on his own and

    encourage him to ask his teacher if he

    needs help

    X Do your child’s homework for him

    X Add to your child’s learning load

    unnecessarily with tuition and

    assessment books.

  • Managing Self

    We want your child to be able to manage challenges and make ethical responsible

    decisions to thrive in the VUCA future

    How parents can partner us:

    Reinforce school efforts in the holistic

    development of your child e.g. by allowing

    time for play at home, ensuring sufficient

    sleep, and encouraging active participation

    in school programme such as CCA, camps,

    VIA, etc.

    X Focus only on academic

    progress in conversations

    with teachers; ask about your

    child’s progress in other areas

    such as socio-emotional

    aspects and values


    Know your child’s strength and abilities and

    set realistic expectations for him. If need be,

    discuss with your child’s teachers.

  • Managing Self

    We want your child to be able to manage challenges and make ethical responsible

    decisions to thrive in the VUCA future

    How parents can partner us:

    Encourage your child to be resilience and to learn from the

    consequences of not completing his homework or

    forgetting to

    bring items to school.

    Guide your child to also manage disappointments e.g. if he

    did not win a prize, get nominated as one of the class

    leaders, etc.

    Speak to the teachers to find out more so as to help your

    child to solve his problems if he expresses concerns about


  • Working with the school to know and support you child

    We want to develop and strengthen mutual understanding, respect and trust between the

    school and parents for the benefit of your child

    How parents can partner us:

    Clarify the preferred modes of

    communication with the teacher

    e.g. handbook, email, office phone

    X Expect teachers to give daily updates

    on your child or provide detailed

    instructions on homework, preparations

    for tests and exams, etc.

    Contact teachers during school

    operating hours only and to leave a

    message to call back if the teacher

    is having lesson

    X Expect teachers to respond

    immediately to your queries. Call the

    school office if it is an emergency.

  • Working with the school to know and support your child

    We want to develop and strengthen mutual understanding, respect and trust between the

    school and parents for the benefit of your child

    How parents can partner us:

    Work together with the school to fully

    understand and support the teacher in helping

    your child to respect differences and resolve

    disagreements respectfully

    X Approach another child/parent

    directly when an incident occurs

    Have confidence in the school to resolve any

    disagreements and misunderstandings between

    students. In the event of an incident occurring,

    give the teacher time to establish the facts and

    allow school to take the necessary actions to

    address the issue and restore relationships

    X Come into the school e.g. canteen

    during dismissal to bring food.

    Instead, wait for your child at the

    Main Gate area OR at the side gate.

    This is also part of the school safety

    and security measures.

    Work with the teachers to help your child learn

    from his mistakes, and take restorative actions

    to correct his mistake

    Allow the school to engage parents of all parties

    involved before coming to a decision on the

    actions to be taken
