At DBF, we welcome parents as equal partners in the children’s education and encourage strong links between home and school.

It is important to us that parents feel welcome and involved in the children’s education, for research shows that effective parental support helps children to make excellent progress. having worked hard to create a family-feel environment within our school during the past four years, we now seek to strengthen this further as our school community is at full capacity.   

Parental Partnership Activities may include:

  • attendance at coffee mornings    
  • attendance at school information sharing sessions
  • and courses           
  • membership of our school advisory board (sab)           
  • becoming a class parent representative
  • volunteering to be a classroom helper       
  • volunteering to help with school excursions and events

Parent Volunteers and Class Parent Representatives 

We greatly appreciate the help we receive from parents which enhances the learning experiences for all children who attend DBF. all volunteers in school will be advised about evacuation procedures in case of an emergency and dbf policies that may relate to their visit or type of involvement. on arrival, volunteers must sign in at reception and wear their dbf id badges. this provides the necessary details we require should we need to vacate the building. when leaving the school, volunteers must please sign out at reception. class volunteers working with children, must do so in the presence of the class teacher, following the teacher’s guidance. all adults in school act as role models for our children and so should conduct themselves professionally. confidentiality relating to school information is of the upmost importance and should be respected at all times.

Parent Concerns

We are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your child’s progress or personal development in school. bring your concerns to us while they are small, for problems which are ignored may grow and become more difficult to resolve.
