Partnership with Parents

We believe that a good relationship between home and school is essential. We want the very best for your child and need your help and support to achieve this. There are many ways in which we seek to develop our home – school links; these are just some of them!


Induction


We aim to make your child’s transition into school as smooth as possible. Our staff will arrange a home visit so that your child can meet them in familiar surroundings. Staff will visit the local play school to talk about your child. Finally, your child will be invited to visit school for three half days prior to starting school and you will be invited to meet the Head teacher.


Home School Agreement


When your child first joins us we will ask you to sign our Home School Agreement, this gives details of our commitment to you and your child and the ways you can help as parents.


Parent /Teacher Consultations


Parents are welcome to call into school at any time to see either a teacher or Mrs Allsopp. However it is a good idea to arrange an appointment so that we are able to make time to discuss matters with you properly.
Parents’ evenings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms, when parents can meet teachers to discuss their child’s progress and share any concerns that may have arisen. Our written reports are sent out to parents at the end of the Summer term.


Homework


Homework plays an essential part in reinforcing and extending children’s learning. It provides parents with an opportunity to become involved in their child’s learning. Homework is set regularly and is recorded in the homework diary or workbook and stored in the Homework folder or book depending on the child’s age. A homework club operates for children in Key Stage 2 each week.


Parent helpers


We are always very grateful for any time that parents or relatives may be able to spare to support us at school. Some of our helpers hear readers, help by cooking or artwork. All volunteers are asked to complete a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).check
