So… because of Covid parents aren’t allowed in classrooms with minimal interaction with the teacher. Every time I take him to class, whether earlier or later, or even at pick up time, there are two sets of parents at the teachers ear going on about pointless things and trying to push how the teacher must look after their child. I just want to know if my son is ok. If I need to teach or help him with anything you know?

  • If your child was having trouble at school you’d know. It’s hard to not know what’s happening but schools need to be pretty on top of support for their students.

  • First time mum here and I have sat down with the teacher as I was concerned too if my daughter did like prep or wasn’t fitting in.
    I do make the conversation with my daughter after school to see what they did on the day and if anything happened. She tells me what she did and which kids were being naughty. If you are concerned talk to the teacher to get an update.

  • Covid certainly has complicated things. I’d keep asking the teachers, talk to your child and even the other parents (those ones who keep pestering what have they found is going on?)

  • You’re going to have to speak up, make yourself heard. Or ring the school and make an appointment to chat with the teacher

  • Message the teacher and make a time to have this conversation with them then they will have to move the other parents aside because you have an appointment with them.

  • Call or email the school and ask the teacher to give you a call. Pick up and drop off time isn’t the ideal time to be chatting with the teacher. Make sure that you talk to your child about their day and that you set them up for success – get them to pack/unpack their own bag, be responsible for their own things, speak clearly, be able to use the toilet by themselves and eat their lunch independently. These things will help with any anxiety or worries you or your son might be having about school.
