The Education Review Office (ERO) has written this booklet for everyone who parents a child – those who have care and responsibility for children attending a school.

Asking questions at school is one way you can find out how your child is doing, and also gives the teacher a chance to talk to you about how you can be involved. The role of schools is to give your child the best possible opportunity to learn and to be successful. The best way to achieve this is for families and schools to work together, and for parents, caregivers, whanau and aiga to know they are welcome at school.
