Parents are invited to a parents evening in the Autumn and Spring Term where their child’s progress is discussed. An open afternoon and full report is provided in the summer term. We provide weekly newsletters to keep parents informed about school events. Information on the curriculum and coverage is shared with parents regularly. A notice board is located by the school gates to keep parents up to date. We also find speaking to parents at the school gate an invaluable way of keeping in touch.
We now also use the email facility within ParentPay to communicate effectively with parents. Once your child starts school, you will be provided with an activation code to enable you to access school messages and pay for school dinners, trips and clubs electronically.
We also seek parent’s views each year via a questionnaire.
We are always happy to welcome parent into school, but due to staff teaching commitments this must be by prior arrangement. If you have any concerns or worries, please contact the head teacher or your child’s class teacher.
There are regular opportunities to assist in the daily life of the school. This may involve accompanying visits out of school or working with in class supporting small groups of children. Several of our visits are very dependent on parental assistance with transport.
Parental help is also welcome to assist with some extra-curricular activities. This may be on a weekly basis where parents have certain skills and expertise.
Every year there is an annual meeting for parents to meet the governors to discuss their report on the previous school year.
Each term there is at least one opportunity to visit the school and discuss your child’s progress. This usually takes the form of a 10 minute interview with the class teacher. If, however you have any concerns please do not wait for one of the termly meetings, but contact the teacher or myself as soon as possible to make an appointment. This applies to social, health or academic problems.
Children will also be bringing home reading books, spellings and other homework, which will allow you to monitor their progress.
At the end of each academic year you will receive a written report on your child’s progress in the core subjects, ICT and their social and personal development.
Their attitude and achievement in all other subjects will be outlined.
