What are Year Representatives?
The system of Year Representatives works particularly well at our school. Any Sacred Heart parent can volunteer to be a Year Rep for their child's year. The role of a Year Rep is evolving to focus more on ‘pastoral care’ ie. connecting parents, buddying new families, encouraging parents’ to support in classroom and school activities, and coordinating social events that bring families together. Year representatives liaise with teachers and encourage all parents in the year group to become involved in planning and running events throughout the year.
Issue with another student
If parents have an issue with another child’s behaviour, they need to speak with their child's classroom teacher regarding this, in the first instance. Parents should not take it upon themselves to speak about an issues with any children other than their own. It is best practice to have the school deal with behavioural issues rather than contacting a child's parents.
