We are an ambitious school; we want the best for each child, because they deserve no less. Parental involvement with the school and their child’s education has a positive effect on the child’s progress and development. Children benefit enormously from the knowledge and security that the school and their parents are working together to support, encourage and recognise their endeavours and achievements. This is equally true as we work to resolve difficulties they may either have, or be causing. It is therefore important that parents know and understand the school, our procedures and staff so that they can feel their trust in us is well placed. Good two-way communication is important.
We send home regular newsletters and year group letters to provide information about school events and educational matters. We have boards outside the reception to year 4 classrooms to inform parents of the learning that has taken place that day. Each class also a page on our “online school” where we keep parents updated with the teaching and learning for each year group. Personal contact is encouraged and parents are invited to meet with the Class Teacher, the Deputy Headteacher or Headteacher if they have concerns about their child’s progress or welfare or wish to praise or thank us. We respectfully ask parents to understand that staff are committed to professional meetings with colleagues on Mondays each term, so will be unable to meet with you at these times.
Parent / teacher consultations are held twice a year to discuss your children’s learning, progress and attendance. Written reports are issued annually with an opportunity afterwards for parents to meet with teachers to discuss children’s progress to targets.
If, during the year, parents would like a longer discussion about their child, an appointment with the teacher can be made by contacting the school office.
It is important that you keep the school informed of any important changes that might affect your child. Please let us know promptly of any medical, physical or emotional difficulties of which you become aware.
In the interest of your child’s health and safety, the school must be kept informed of any change of address or emergency contact numbers.
We highly value the partnerships between home and school click this link to read our Home School Agreement.
