Regular contact with your child’s teachers will be beneficial not only for the two of you, but also for your child. Your youngster will see how much you care about their education and may be more inclined to try hard and impress you. 

Communication with the teachers is also great for keeping both parties informed about your child’s progress, both at home and in school, so that you can tackle any concerns and ensure your child is on the right track. 
Of course, ‘Parents’ Evenings’ are a given because they allow you to discuss your child’s progress throughout the academic year. However, your child’s teacher will likely be more than happy to talk to you about any pressing concerns at different times, not just on Parents’ Evening. 

However, be sure to arrange a suitable time for both parties, rather than pressing the teacher for answers in the morning when your drop your child off, as they will be very busy at this time. Instead, it’sbetter to arrange a meeting with the office.

It’s good to keep your child’s teachers informed about any big changes going on at home, like a relative has passed away, you’re moving house or there’s a new baby on the way, so that they can keep an eye on your youngster during school hours.

They can also cut them some slack if their concentration isn’t at it’s best with everything that could be going on.

It will be very beneficial for your parent-teacher relationship for you to provide regular feedback. A little “thank-you” will go a long way and will show them how appreciated they are.

 If your child really enjoyed a particular lesson, be sure to let the teacher know so that they know their hard work is paying off. It’s also really nice to send a card at the end of the academic year or Christmas time.
