Given how hectic the first day’s been, I will just do a quick refresher on our YES Message, particularly for our new parents. YES stands for YES – You Can Do It, YES – Every Student Succeeding Everyday and YES – Stars, which stands for Student Targets will Aim for Real Success. The latter is our goal setting with every child for reading, spelling and numeracy. You will have also notice that the “E” has changed from Every Student Shall Improve to match the departments message of Every Student Succeeding Everyday. I will include a YES message each week talking about an aspect of school and how you can support your children at school.
What can you do to help at home?
Use the YES language with your children. For example when they are struggling, remind them they Can Do It, they might need your or their teacher’s help, but they Can Do It. Look out for these messages and think about how you can use the information to help keep your children on track at school.
