3. Day One Email - At the end of your child’s first day, you will receive an email from your child’s class teacher with an overview of their day and how they have settled into their new environment. This is an important step and establishes communication, but also provides an important talking point for dinner table conversation, following that first day.
4. Initial Settling in Report - Within 6 weeks of joining you will receive your child’s first report. This is a settling in report that includes a pastoral comment as well as a report for English and Maths. Whilst our preferred communication is always face to face (your teacher will take time to catch up informally when you are in school, for Sports Day, Coffee Mornings or NAIS Manila has Talent!) the report is a slightly more formal approach.
Often we find that relocating to a new country, starting a new job and moving schools is more daunting for the parents than it is for the child. Whilst no two transitions are the same, we clearly see benefits from the personal approach we offer families joining mid-year.
I hope you have enjoyed our monthly blog, we wish you the best of the holidays and look forward to seeing you all (both old and new) in January!
