Parent and School Partnership
It is our belief that to achieve the best education for your child then a partnership between parents, pupils and staff is essential.
If learning is to be a pleasurable and rewarding experience then it is more effective when there is close co-operation between home and school.
Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the life of the school, and their support is welcome. Opportunities are provided during the year to consult with the class teacher on an individual basis. The staff are always willing to meet parents to discuss children's progress.
Open events for parents such as Mathematics and Phonics briefings allow parents to understand key learning processes as well as building relationships with our school staff.
Our statement of values and ethos encompasses our vision for our school and can be read here.
We run stay and play events for Nursery new starters where school staff also give briefings on all different areas of school life. These sessions support parents new to our Nursery.
Open mornings in Upper Foundation Stage allow parents to spend a morning alongside their children in class. We hold open mornings so that parents can picture the environment their children are talking about at home and see first hand how and what their children do.
We also hold curriculum evenings for children in UFS to Y6 so parents can work alongside their children and the school staff looking at how we teach spelling, handwriting, mathematics, reading and writing skills. We share the topics that we study throughout the year and demonstrate how learning in core subjects is applied to outcomes in the foundation subjects. We demonstrate the importance of developing and recalling knowledge in our foundation subjects.
Weekly class assemblies by each class allow parents to come into school and see what their children have been learning and be amazed and inspired by their confidence in speaking in front of a large audience as well as enjoying their singing and musical performances, dance routines, dramatisation of historical events, ability to communicate effectively and confidently in a foreign language as well as show their stunning art work.
Parents new to the area and parents looking around schools for their child's first school are warmly welcomed into the school to look around and visit classes at a time that suits you. We do not hold a specific open day, we meet the needs of parents, organising a date suitable for parents.
Please contact the school office where your enquiry will be dealt with by our friendly staff.
