Communication Between Home & School
Our partnership with parents is crucial to the working of the school and for this reason it is very important to us that you are fully informed about your child's progress and events at school. We do this in the following ways:
- Regular texts and emails for quick and urgent messages.
- Regular letters from the Headteacher which are sent by email and displayed on the board outside. Paper copies are available from the school office.
- Messages on LCD display in Front Entrance.
- Curriculum forecasts and letters from your child‛s class teacher at the beginning of term.
- How to Support Your Child's Learning Workshops, e.g. ReadWriteInc. (Early Literacy); Spellodrome; Reading; Learning Tables.
- Weekly Celebration Assemblies on Friday mornings.
- Class celebration and presentation of work in each class at the end of each term.
- Annual Reports issued in July.
- Parent Evenings in the Autumn and Spring terms and in the Summer term for parents of children with SEND.
- Regularly updated website with newsletters and calendar.
- Regular talks on the curriculum to explain how we work and how you can help support your child.
- Annual Parent Survey to hear your views.
- The Headteacher is available at the beginning and end of most days for messages and consultation. On those few occasions when she is not, an appointment can be made within 24 hours.
- Class teachers are available at the beginning of the day for quick messages, but cannot speak at length at this time because they need to teach! They will always be prepared to make an appointment to meet after school.
- The Special Needs Co-ordinator or Learning Mentor is always happy to make appointments with parents of children with SEN to discuss concerns.
We welcome parents into the school. There are many ways in which you can help in the classroom, e.g. reading, cooking, and making. Many parents also help with transporting children to various events. All parents who help on a regular basis are DBS checked.
