Co-operation between Home and School

Parents have the primary responsibility in the upbringing of their child. The school is responsible for the child’s teaching and bringing up as a member of the school community. The task of the school is to provide the parents or guardians information so that they can follow and promote the learning and school attendance of their children.

The law on basic education obligates schools to co-operate with homes. The co-operation may be related to:

  • the learning of the child
  • evaluation
  • writing a curriculum
  • developing the operations of the school
