We value positive relationships with parents and carers to help develop better social and emotional skills in children. We know that when children are engaged with their learning, they attend school more regularly, leading to better long term outcomes.

For parenting and counselling services, visit the Family Support page, and for direction and clarity on regulations, processes and procedures at our school, read the Sydney Catholic School policies.

Parental Involvement

At Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School Clifton Gardens, parents and carers are welcome at our school. It is widely acknowledged that learning is enhanced when parents and teachers are recognised as partners in education.

Parents can be involved by:

  • Attending parent information evenings
  • Attending parent-teacher-student meetings
  • Supporting special activities such as athletics or swimming carnival, Mission Day
  • Assisting in the classroom 
  • Assisting on an excursion.

Each class has class parents who support the class teacher and promote school activities.

Class teachers are happy to discuss your child’s progress. However, please make an appointment convenient to both parent and teacher, as teachers are often involved in meetings both before and after school.

It is a legal requirement that any parents working with children in the school must sign a Prohibited Employment Declaration (available online at www.nswchildprotection.com.au) and complete a mandatory induction with the principal at school.
