A strong bond between Parent – teacher – student relationships forms a sacred triangle of community at Neev.
This kind of collaborative relationship is an effective partnership, which is based on mutual trust and respect, and shared responsibility for the education of student at the school. Genuine respect, strong positive relationships and warmth towards one another characterise Neev community life.
Why are family-school partnerships important?
Families are the first educators of their children and they continue to influence their children’s learning and development during the school years and long afterwards. Schools have an important responsibility in helping to nurture and teach future generations and families trust schools to provide educational foundations for their children’s future. At the same time, schools need to recognise the primary role of the family in education. This is why it is important for families and schools to work together in partnership.
Research demonstrates that effective schools have high levels of parental involvement. This involvement is strongly related to improved student learning, attendance and behaviour.
The research overwhelmingly demonstrates that parent involvement in children's learning is positively related to achievement. This holds true for all types of parent involvement in children's learning and for all types and ages of students. The research overwhelmingly indicates that parent involvement not only positively affects student achievement, it contributes to higher quality education and better performance of schools overall
At Neev, family involvements have a major impact on student learning, regardless of the social or cultural background of the family.
