IBPYP Parent Guides

Parental involvement is encouraged and valued within the IB philosophy as part of a wider collaborative learning community.

There are many ways that parents can play a vital role in their child’s PYP journey.

Involvement in learning:

Participate in your child’s learning experience through shared projects at home, asking your child about what they are learning, supporting their personal inquiries and desire to take meaningful action.


Engage with newsletters, online portfolios (Seesaw), meetings and student-led conferences.


Volunteer, share your expertise with classes around important issues, provide resources.


Attend workshops around key aspects of the PYP, reach out to teachers and the PYP coordinators for more information or visit the IBO site for a range of parent resources.
