Home Academy Partnership

Our home-academy partnership helps teachers at Harris Academy Rainham form strong relationships with our students. It also helps improve academic performance and nurtures positive feelings towards school-life and learning. You can download a copy of our Home-Academy Agreement from our Student Welfare page.

Academic achievement

Parental involvement in academy life is proven to lead to better academic performance, greater attendance and impressive homework completion rates. Students whose parents take a keen interest in their education and serve as effective role models are also more likely to pursue higher education.

Teacher interactions

Getting to know parents helps teachers understand the environment and economic, political or cultural influences that shape students' points of view and behavioural traits. This in turn leads to improved communication between students and teachers, enhancing trust, mutual respect and helps improve the wider educational process that is taking place.

Parental participation

Parents who get to know their students' teachers, the curriculum and the methods used to help the students are more likely to help their son or daughter to progress in their studies. Parents who involve themselves in the education process are also more likely to develop and strengthen close bonds with their son or daughter. Parents that help promote education and celebrate achievement within this area are more likely to help their son or daughter achieve a fruitful working career on competition of their education.
