Parents as partners

We value the role that parents play in supporting their child's learning and development in school. As such, we have various activities that encourage parents to be more active in their children's development.

Early Years

Thursdays:  Stay and Learn session every week from 8.45-9.30am, in classes.

Fridays:  Celebration assembly for EY from 3pm, in the hall.

School

Open Events

Each term we invite parents to join in a lesson with their children. The focus of this open event changes each term. Over the course of the year, this allows parents to experience the learning that their child does every day, and helps to understand the expectations of their year group.

Parents' Evenings

Parents' Evenings are held twice a year, usually in November and March. We hold these from 1-6pm, with a designated day for each year group. Parents' Evenings allow parents to discuss their child's development in more detail, and ask any questions to teachers. For those unable to attend at these times, we are happy to meet with you at a time more convenient for you.

Planners

Each child is given a planner at the beginning of the year. This will have details of their timetable for the week and is used to record reading and spellings. There are pages at the back to support the learning of children. The planner provides parents with the opportunity to write notes to the teacher and to find out how their child is doing each week. Children must bring their planners in each day; lost planners will cost £5 to replace.

Reports

Our reports provide information about children's learning attitude, where they are in relation to core subjects and details about their attendance.  We have been adjusting our reports each year based on feedback from parents. 

Assemblies and Information Meetings

We have regular class assemblies, which parents are invited to, and we hold information meetings throughout the year to ensure parents have a good understanding of what is happening within school.
