We know that children make the best possible progress with the support, involvement and encouragement of parents. We welcome your help in school and encourage you to take an interest in your child’s learning. We hold parents’ evenings in the autumn and spring terms when we invite you to discuss your child’s work with the teacher. We send home a written report before the second parents’ evening. In the summer term we hold an open evening when everyone interested in the school is invited to visit the whole school to see the full range of work.
Teachers are always happy to see parents at other times, it is easier to see parents after school – making an appointment would ensure a teacher’s availability. The Head invites anyone to discuss his/her worries, fears or praise.
Parents will be invited to sign a home/school agreement, which is a charter of rights and responsibilities, when their child begins school. Children in Key Stage 2 are expected to be involved in their own agreement.
Newsletters are sent home weekly to try to keep parents informed.
