Working With You
We welcome parents and carers into our school, recognising that we are partners in the education of your children. We feel very privileged to have such supportive parents; your input and feedback is greatly valued.
We communicate with you in a variety of ways, via texts, emails, regular newsletters, questionnaires, workshops and informal events, Parents’ Evenings and other events where the work and achievements of pupils is showcased. Staff will always be happy to meet with you to discuss any concerns you may have.
We know that children learn best in a well-organised, calm and secure environment with high standards of behaviour. We want every child in our school to feel confident, happy and safe. As a caring school we have the high expectations for pupils’ learning, behaviour and attitudes; we encourage our children to develop pride in their achievements.
You will receive regular reports on your child’s progress achievements; this may take the form of a written report, or a meeting with their class teacher. Between those meetings, teachers invite you to contact them to ask any questions you may have or to arrange a meeting.
We welcome any voluntary help that parents feel they can give during the school day. Please see the class teachers or come to the office. We have several parents, who come in to hear readers, check reading records or just help generally in the class.
We hold a 'Meet the Teacher' evening at the beginning of the year for parents to familiarise themselves with the new classroom and teacher. Later in the year, we hold another meeting to discuss your child’s progress. There is a formal written report in July and if you wish to discuss the report in more detail, please arrange to meet with the teacher.
Class teachers are always willing to discuss any issues or problems you may have at a time convenient to you both.
We have a positive approach to behaviour management which encourages children to be self-disciplined and to make the right choices. Good behaviour is rewarded and there are consequences for inappropriate behaviour. Generally behaviour throughout the school is good because we have consistency and an agreed set of procedures followed by everyone.
Anyone who has a concern should contact either their child’s Class Teacher or the Key Stage Lead in the first instance.
If the matter cannot be resolved in this way the school has a set of procedures in place to ensure that your concern is heard. Please ask the school office for a copy of the procedure.
