As a staff we endeavour to establish a good relationship with all parents and carers. We actively encourage good communication between home and school. Parents are welcome to meet with staff or the Headship Team at any time to discuss their children. Please do not hesitate to contact the school. It is not always necessary to make an appointment, as we will endeavour to see you immediately if we are able. Teaching staff are usually available after school. Alternatively you can make an appointment to see them via the school office.
Teacher / Parent Evenings
We hold two formal Teacher/Parent evenings per year, the first in the autumn term (October), to enable teachers and parents to get to know each other early in the school year and the second close to February half term. Every pupil is invited along so that they are directly involved in reviewing progress in their learning and setting their own targets to work towards. At the end of the summer term, your child will bring home his/her report.
Two Parent Governors are members of the School Governing Body. They bring a parents perspective to the Governing Body. They are a direct contact for you and can liaise between the Headteacher and Governors on your behalf. All parents are invited to put themselves forward for election as a vacancy arises on the Governing Body.
Curriculum Information Sheets
At the beginning of each term, you will receive a curriculum information sheet, giving a brief account of the work the pupils will be doing during the term. This also contains suggestions of how you can support your child’s learning: please do all you can to put these suggestions into practice.
You will receive a weekly newsletter with dates of school events and general school news.
During the year, you will receive invitations to various events – Open Evenings, Assemblies etc. Please attend as many as possible to share in the successes of all the pupils as well as your own child. To help you plan your attendance, a schedule of event dates are provided in our annual diary.
