We value the views of all parents. Both the Headteacher and the staff are always on hand to listen and help. Parents have opportunities to share their thoughts through informal chats, parents groups, home/school appointments and questionnaires.
Other ways to be involved ......
These are held three times a year and we regard them as very important. They provide an opportunity for you to discuss your child’s progress with their teacher and see samples of work. We strongly urge you to come to every parents’ evening. During the Summer Term parents are invited to school to receive the child’s annual report.
We think it is really important that we get to know you and that you get to know us. One of the ways that we do this is to have workshops for parents. In these workshops we look at different aspects of school life.
Every term each class takes turn in presenting the assembly. We invite parents to join us for this assembly. We hope you will come, particularly if it is your child’s turn to lead.
Communication with Parents
Letters and newsletters are sent home weekly, informing parents about what is going on in school. If you have any concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to discuss these with your child’s class teacher. If you have any other concerns the Headteacher will be happy to discuss them with you.
How you can help us to help your child
It is vital that you as parents and we as teachers work together for your child’s benefit. Each family is asked to sign and support a home school agreement so that everyone is clear and equally committed to giving your child the best possible education.
