Our partnership with parents

We are strongly committed to the belief that education is most effective when there is a strong partnership between home and school, parents/carers and teachers. We make every effort to welcome parents and to keep them informed because a spirit of co-operation between home and school is an essential feature of successful learning.

We encourage home-school co-operation in the following ways:

  • by providing a warm welcome to new families;
  • through participating in our careful induction programme for new entrants;
  • by asking parents to visit the school before their child starts;
  • through providing parents with regular newsletters and weekly information;
  • by meeting with parents at parent’s evenings and at an open Parent’s Forum;
  • by discussing successes and openly discussing issues if they arise;
  • by offering parents opportunities for helping in school on a regular basis;
  • by providing parents with workshops to advise them about updates to the curriculum;
  • by parents showing an interest in and assisting with homework tasks and reading;
  • through automatic membership of our successful and active Parent Teacher Association (PTA); and
  • by asking parents to sign the home-school agreement.

Links with other schools

We wish to make the children’s education continuous and effective links are made with previous schools and, in particular, with secondary schools to ensure a successful transfer from one stage of education to the next.

Consultation and written reports

We offer a parent consultation evening in the autumn and spring terms. Both events offer an opportunity to discuss each child's progress and ways in which parents/carers might help, if necessary.

In the summer term, parents will receive a written report and there is an opportunity to discuss this report with the teacher at the parent’s request.

In addition to these meetings, the children invite their parents to visit their class once each term during ‘Class Open Time’. Each child will show their parents a favourite piece of work that they are particularly proud of as well as give their parents a tour of their classroom.

An additional welcome meeting is offered in July, ready for September, for all parents to inform them of the curriculum, proposed visits and homework arrangements for the new year group.

There may be occasions when you wish to discuss a matter concerning your child, or you may simply be seeking information. Please feel welcome, throughout the year, to discuss these matters with the class teacher in the first instance. More information about how to contact your child’s class teacher can be found in Our A to Z Guide to School Life.
