5 REASONS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER JOINING OUR PARENT SUPPORTERS
Studies show there is a direct link between parental involvement at school and child’s attainment; when children see us involved in their school and learning, it encourages them to do their best. Being active in a parent group not only improves your child's school, it makes you an excellent role model.
2. Being part of a community
Joining WRAPS is a fast way to get to know parents and staff outside of your child’s year group. Feeling part of a community is a very real human need - and more practically these friendships create a support network.
3. It gives you a voice
Many WRAPS members already act as a consultative group for the school leaders and Governors. So whether it’s deciding on where WRAPS funds are spent or presenting new ideas to the WRAPS team you can make sure parents have a voice in how our school operates.
4. Gain experience whilst not letting it take up too much time
There is always plenty of opportunities when you volunteer as a parent supporter. Whether you work full-time, part-time or you’re a stay-at-home parent, any time you can offer would be welcomed. There are a many diverse roles to play in the WRAPS team, from designing posters to planning and hosting events, there is something for everyone. But the most important skills you can bring to the team are enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in!
5. It raises welcome funds for the school
That’s the aim of the game! Whether it’s creating an outdoor classroom, stocking the science resources or arranging a school trip. The funds raised by the WRAPS team have a MASSIVE impact on the opportunities and experiences of the children at school.
See below to check out all the upcoming events. We hope to see plenty of you there! If you would like to volunteer at any of these events please email wraps on:
