Schools can get carried away with telling parents how they ought to behave which seems to be going beyond just keeping parents informed. The education of children is a joint project between schools and parents and it doesn't help the relationship if one or other party sees themselves in the driving seat. It has to be a partnership - it doesn't help if the parents get pushy or the schools get authoritarian. It looks as though the newsletters are becoming a way of the school telling parents we are in charge and please do what we tell you.feedback
