Parent Forum

Parents are always welcome in school. We want you to be involved in the life of the school and the education of your child. We hope you will feel that the atmosphere in our school is welcoming and that you can always approach us.

Helping in School and at home

We welcome parental help in school. If you would like to help, either regularly, or on an occasional basis, please contact the school and we will arrange for a DBS check to be completed.

You might help with reading, computers, gardening, art activities, going on educational visits, for example. We also encourage parents to use their skills in extra curricular activities. If you can help with this, please let us know.

Support and help from parents is an essential part of a child’s education. It can have a significant impact on a child’s progress. Please encourage your children to complete their homework and bring it to school on time. We hope you will share books with your child and help them develop a love of books and reading that will bring life-long pleasure.

Parents' Evening/ Reports

During the Autumn term, parents are given an appointment with the class teacher. This is an opportunity to discuss how your child has settled in a new class and set targets. This is followed by a further appointment in the Spring term to discuss your child’s achievements, progress and attitude; your child’s next targets and how you can help at home.

Towards the end of the Summer term, parents of children in Key Stages One and Two will receive the annual written report from the class teacher. This provides specific and personal information about your child’s progress, achievements and general attitude and behaviour, together with their next targets in learning in the core subjects of English and maths. You may request an appointment with the teacher to discuss it if you wish

Keeping in Touch

As well as communicating in ways outlined above, reading/homework diaries go backwards and forwards between home and school on a regular basis and provide a fast, easy way to have a dialogue with your child’s teacher.

Teachers are also available to talk to you at the end of each school day.
