At Jaffaria Academy we believe that parents are at the core of their children’s educational journey. We provide support to parents in various ways to help them be effective at their role which includes support to the academic aspect of their child’s education as well as other elements (explored further in the Wellbeing and Islamic Education sections of this website). We do this through various events, seminars, and workshops.
In the following section you can see some examples of the kind of support we provide which includes Parents Evenings twice a year, multiple feedback sessions, coffee mornings, academic workshops, and Podcast episodes dedicated to topics around education and the role of parents.
Episode title: Learning and developing with STEM
With the expertise of our guest, Dr. Samina, we explored how STEM education positively contributes towards students’ development. Valuable skills such as critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving are all nurtured through this exploration of integrated learning and hands on experience. Developing this foundation of skills gives our children the confidence to succeed in a variety of industries. This podcast will help increase our awareness and appreciate the merits gained for children of all ages. As well as ideas on how to encourage and support our children to take part in STEM opportunities.
