Family Engagement Officer
I am Miss Trubey and I am the Family Engagement Worker for Baden Powell Primary.
I work Monday to Thursday and am based in the PIP Cabin. If i am not there i can be contacted through the school office.
I have a background in family support work and am keen to engage with as many of our parents as possible.
I plan to run coffee mornings, adult learning courses, advice and guidance sessions and some family learning workshops amongst other things. Some of the things we already have running are listed below.
I hope to see you all soon.
The aim of the 'Pip project' is to promote parental involvement in children’s learning and the life of the school.
The 'Pip' project activities are for open to all our families, to help our pupils have the best educational experience possible.

Rhyme Time Challenge - Starting soon with Nursery Children
USING songs, rhymes and picture books is a great way to help your child
develop their language and communication skills. It’s never too early or too
late to start signing and rhyming with your child.
Not only is it fun but it is also a great way to get to know each other. Children’s
communication skills develop at different rates but there are many things
parents can do to help their child develop the skills to read, write and communicate effectively.
Sing to your child. A child loves nothing more than the sound of their parents’
voice. Don’t worry about being the best singer.
They love changes in variation and vocal tone. This keeps it exciting for them
and helps them to learn about the natural sounds of a language. If you forget
the words, make up your own variations. What’s most important is the time you
and your child spend singing together. Giving children a sense of joy and
excitement about language will naturally help to boost their desire to read and write.
Rhymes also help us to learn to play with words. They tune our ears to all the
sounds in the word. By hearing different sounds we learn how sounds
combine and blend together to form a word.
If we can learn the sounds and hear the different sounds that make up a word
then we can learn how to play with them, how to change them and most
importantly, we can learn to recognise what sounds can be paired with other
sounds. A child who knows four nursery rhymes by the time they’re four will
naturally be a better reader at eight years old.
