Hamara Supplementary School is working towards making Leeds a child friendly city. To that end, we set up a student council to give children and young people a chance to express their views, feel heard and be involved in decisions that affect their lives. As well as running English, Mathematics, Science and homework support sessions to offer a safe and effective learning environment and encourage and engage children who are at risk of not achieving targets in learning.
In order to further our aim of tackling underachievement and raising attainment levels of the children, we intend to provide tailored support to parents/carers who face particular challenges in supporting their children with their schooling.
We had a fantastic turn out at our Parent Consultation & First Parent Workshop on the 8th of March. 22 parents attended and 17 signed up and committed to future workshops, A GREAT START!
At Hamara Supplementary School we consider that strong parental involvement is an essential part of ensuring our pupils achieve their potential. We believe our tailored workshops will have a key role in working towards this goal.
The second workshop ran on the 22nd March was entitled ‘Dealing with Behaviour and Developing Positive Attitudes Towards Learning’.
Next workshop will be running on Saturday the 29th March. Lunch will be provided before the session begins and there will be a crèche available and bilingual support for those that may require it.
