Welcome to Clifden Community School Parents Association - Powerpoint Presentation

The Board of Management of Clifden Community School acknowledges the primary responsibility of parents for the education of their children. It seeks to promote a positive partnership with parents.

  • Parent/teacher meetings
  • Regular newsletters
  • Welcoming parents to the school as outlined in the handbook for parents and students
  • Inviting parents to share life skills with students e.g. advice on careers, social and other skills etc.
  • Promoting an active Parents’ Association

Parents/guardians are asked to support the school through

  • Encouraging daily attendance and punctuality
  • Ensuring that their son/daughter complies with this code of behaviour and discipline
  • Reading or discussing the code of behaviour and school processes with their son/daughter
  • Encouraging co-operation with school personnel
  • Fostering positive attitudes about school
  • Becoming involved in their child’s school life
  • Monitoring homework
  • Creating and supporting proper study habits, and facilities for their children
