We recognise the vital role that parents play in their children’s education and believe that it is in all children’s interests that school and parents work together to do our best for all children. We are always pleased to see parents to discuss any problem or query, but would like to stress the need to make an appointment, through the school office, to see the class teacher or the Headteacher. Parents considering entry may make an appointment to look round the school.
Parents’ evenings are arranged twice during the year, when parents can discuss in private their child’s progress with the teachers. Written reports of progress are sent to parents in the latter part of the academic year.
During the course of the year, monthly newsletters are sent to parents informing them of events concerning their child.
Parents are also invited into school on a number of occasions throughout the year and are welcome at all whole school Friday morning assemblies.
Helping in School
A group of adults, including parents, help our school on an informal basis in a variety of ways, such as fund raising, working in the classroom and making educational equipment. This extra help is much appreciated and if you would like to be included, then let a member of staff know. In line with local and national guidance, all volunteers will be CRB checked to help to safeguard and protect the children. We welcome your support and co-operation, without which we cannot ensure the best education for your child. The interest and encouragement of parents is of considerable benefit to the individual child and to the school as a whole.
The Parent/Teachers’ Association is involved in fundraising for the school. All parents are invited to PTA meetings and events. Please see Mrs Khan, our Learning Mentor, if you would like to know more.
