Tip #2 is no shocks at parents’ evening
Have early discussions with parents about any concerns at all, both positive and negative; social and academic. The longer any issues are left, the bigger they become, the more anxious all parties get about discussing them and the greater the impact on the children.
Have brave conversations, and have them sooner, rather than later.
Where parents do not collect their children after school, pick up the phone and speak to them.
