Collaboration with home

Parents are responsible for their children’s behaviour. Schools make every effort to work together with parents and support them with this challenging area. For children to have the best possible learning experience at school, it is important that the school and parents work together.

It is important that students, parents and teachers communicate with each other. They need to talk about the child’s scholastic development and well-being at school. This type of meeting and discussion should take place at least twice each year.
It is important to read and take into consideration all written information from the school. Most children receive a homework plan and/or study plan. These plans tell what the child’s class is learning about the various subjects. These plans also include important information for parents or guardians. Parents can contact the teacher or other school staff members with any questions.

A meeting is organised so that parents can meet the teacher and other parents. Together they talk about the class and class environment as well as plans and activities. At least two such meetings are organised each year. It is important for parents to have the opportunity to become acquainted with other parents.


School environment

School children have the right to a good school environment, both physically and psychosocially. Children have the right to an everyday school life in which they thrive and experience a sense of security and they have the right to a good learning environment that is adapted to their needs.

If parents believe that their children’s rights are not being met, they can complain. The complaint is submitted to the school. If the parents and school are unable to reach agreement, the parents can submit their complaint to the municipality. The county governor is the final administrative appeal body.
