Thank you for choosing Nord Anglia School Nantong and becoming the founding parents of our school! From this moment, we all have a common goal and let’s work together to guarantee our students a promising future.
To create a better tomorrow for the students, our school and teachers expect to reach a consensus with all parents regarding the following four aspects:
- The relationship among students, school and parents
The relationship among teachers, parents, and students is like a triangle. The two corners below the triangle are parents and teachers, and the students are the apex. It is our common task to focus on students and continuously enhance the importance of children. The coordination between the parents and the school affects the development of the children, so we share our expectations for teachers, parents and students in the Student/Parent Handbook. Let us do our best to support and help the students, and make it into the motivation of children's learning, so that students can achieve the maximum development academically, personally and socially.
- Respect, trust and cooperate with the school and the teachers
Our common goal is to provide children with a safe and comfortable educational and teaching environment. Therefore, the school has established various rules and regulations. They have been demonstrated repeatedly and are clearly written in the Student/Parent Handbook. Please read them carefully.
We hope that parents will come to us when encounter problems in teaching and learning. I believe that parents have different development plans and expectations for their children, and has different opinions about education. When there is a deviation between the school education and your understanding, parents are always welcome to communicate with us via mail or telephone and we hope that we can reach a consensus. Meanwhile, we would like you to respect and trust the teachers and professionals.
We hope that parents can extend the school's educational philosophy to their family life and practice it at home. We develop students' self-management skills at school, and expect our parents to let the students arrange their time and manage their own items while ensuring their safety. We reinforce students' awareness of service at school and hope that parents can give the students opportunities to take care of their family members and let them learn to care for others; we develop the creativity of the children at school and hope that the parents can let them participate in family activities planning and problem solving. Let children deepen their understanding of the knowledge they learn by exploring in their familiar home environment.
- Be a lifelong learner and be ambitious
I believe that as parents, you have already known the educational philosophy for Nord Anglia - “Be ambitious,” which is our expectation for all members of the learner community. I believe that all parents have the same feeling that children give us the opportunity to experience growth again. This journey is not only about accompanying children to do homework and going through exams, but more importantly, how to help children form a correct world view, understand what they think, and support and encourage them to be curious, to explore during learning, and keep making progress.
The school will also organize parent workshops. Parents will learn basic knowledge of education and psychology, get to know more about international curricula and studying overseas, and discuss education issues with each other. We hope that parents will actively participate in these activities and share their thoughts with the parents that are successful in educating their children.
The school will also send important notices to the parents via email on a regular basis. Parents are requested to check their emails in time. The IT department will also help parents solve problems regarding the use of the school's software system.
- Work together to regulate parent-school cooperation
In addition to regular communication channels such as emails and advanced software systems, the school also plans to establish a parent-school cooperation committee to promote the standardization and regularization of the collaboration. The committee is a bridge between the parents and the school. We will discuss and regulate the basic communication channels, processes and methods.
With the premise to solve issues, we hope that parents can communicate with the school and other parents and when they encounter problems, firstly they should contact the relevant personnel and departments of the school according to the communication procedure. They should also respect and protect their own children and other children, and shouldn’t spread unconfirmed second-hand information in chat groups.
Nord Anglia School Nantong is an international school that integrates various high-quality educational resources. Let us work together to create a harmonious and positive learner community and provide the best education services to our students.
