Manchester International School looks for ways to improve our programme and the opportunities we offer students. The International Baccalaureate (IB) connects a worldwide community of learners who celebrate a common humanity and share a belief that education can help to build a better and more peaceful world. Schools offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) bring a shared commitment to the IB’s mission through the learning community. Education is a social or collective endeavour and a benefit to the community as a whole, as well as to the individuals within it.
Partnerships with parents benefit the students and value the perspectives they bring to the learning community. They add richness to the community by being actively involved in the life of the school to share decisions, exchange ideas, build on experiences and provide support.
The following are some ways that parents and schools can interact in Manchester International School.
• Parent volunteers
• Parent evenings and parent-led events
• Student-led conferences and reports
• Learning celebrations
• School-based presentations and displays
• Student learning diaries and portfolios
• Home–school communication journals (Newsletters, Circulars)
• Mentoring for the Grade 5 PYP exhibition
• Informal discussions
