We positively encourage the partnership between home and school. You are asked to sign a Home School Agreement when your child joins the school.
The success of many school activities relies heavily on parents’ help and support. If you are able to join trips, help in class or help with clubs and activities you will be most welcome. Just complete the form when you receive information about a trip and the teacher will let you know if your help is needed.
We operate an “open door policy”. Staff are always willing to see parents, at the beginning or end of the school day or by appointment. We are always happy to talk to you about any difficulties or concerns that you or your child may have.
In the autumn term you will be invited into school to discuss how your child is settling into their new class and, together with your child, talk about individual targets. In the spring term a Parent Consultation gives you an individual appointment for a further conversation about progress and is a chance to view some of your child’s work. A written report is sent home at the end of the summer term along with an Open Evening to look at your child’s work.
Our website has up-to-date knowledge of all school events and information about the school. Our curriculum newsletters on the website under learning and curriculum are where you are able to see what your children are learning. Paper copies of all information will always be available on request for any parents or carers who prefer that method of communication. The school uses email and mobile text messaging to communicate with parents and carers. Please provide mobile numbers and email addresses and update us whenever there are any changes. All newsletters and letters will be emailed rather than paper copies.
In line with GDPR guidelines, we have introduced a new system called Parentapp which is an electronic way of amending your child’s details when necessary.
When joining the school, parents will receive an invitation code and a link to download Parentapp. Once registered, you will have access to all records. The information is only available to contacts that live at the same address as the child.
Parentapp will allow you to update or add telephone numbers, addresses, dietary needs and much more. It is a secure and efficient way of ensuring we have the correct information for your child.
