How W@W Teachers Work with Parents
Behind every child’s success, there is a loving set of parents who want nothing but the best for their child. Parents must work together with the child’s tutors and teachers to ensure that the child is coping well at school and with the various enrichment classes he/she chooses to undertake. As such, there must be a good system for communication and feedback between teachers and parents where parents are free to voice their concerns and praises.
At W@W, we recognise that working with parents is integral to ensuring a child’s success. With a loving and sound support system at home, children will be able to focus better in class and achieve their full potential, knowing that their parents and teachers are right behind them.
At W@W, all teachers will undergo training to help them in various aspects of their career, such as communicating with parents. There are many training modules to help teachers communicate the child’s performance and what parents can do at home to further their child’s mastery of the English language. It is important that parents and teachers work together towards a common goal, and the first step is for the teacher to provide appropriate and helpful feedback to the parents so that if needed, action can be taken to help the child with his/her learning.
Teachers at W@W care about their students’ performance both inside and outside the classroom. As such, teachers will follow up on the students’ progress at school, giving guidance or brainstorming ideas for school compositions or Weighted Assessments. Parents may want to know what the child is doing both in W@W and in school, and how the lessons at W@W are useful when completing homework at school. As such, there is a need for teachers to know how to communicate the link between the child’s performance at W@W and at school well.
W@W boasts a centralised platform, ClassDojo, which allows parents and teachers to communicate effectively. ClassDojo is a centralised learning management system which allows parents to contact the teacher directly to feedback and ask for updates on their child’s progress. However, W@W is also flexible as some parents may prefer email as a mode of communication, finding that having to log on to another website may be unwieldy for them personally.
It is important that teachers are accessible to parents who want to ask for advice or updates regarding their child’s progress. Parents can feedback to the teacher at any point in time, sharing details about how the child is performing at school or ask for advice about how to motivate their child to read more, or practice writing compositions weekly, for example.
As teachers at W@W are in a team managed by a Middle Leader, fret not – if the teacher is unsure as to how to effectively give useful feedback to parents, the management team at W@W is more than happy to provide guidance in helping teachers communicate with parents. This is especially helpful for new teachers who lack the experience communicating with parents, giving feedback, and commenting on the child’s overall progress during their time at the centre.

Being a Senior Teacher at W@W is no walk in the park. However, W@W has a homely, family environment which immediately can be felt the moment you walk through the door. The students at W@W are extremely eager to learn, and lessons are always a barrel of laughs as students creatively come up with plot ideas and reenact scenes from the stories you teach them.
Teaching is a meaningful career as you will get to impact students’ lives both inside and outside the classroom in a positive way. Students come into W@W and leave feeling inspired and motivated to face the school week. As a teacher, you will experience the joys of helping your students learn not only about how to write essays and pass their exams, but also to be curious about how to observe and navigate the world around them.
