We strongly value the partnership between home and school. This really does make the difference to our children's well-being and to their learning.
We value our relationship with parents and hope to work in
partnership with you as this is of great benefit to your child. There is an open door policy so feel free to come and talk to us or ask questions about any aspects of school life. Remember there is no such thing as a silly question.
Sharing news/ talents about your child
We encourage parents to also contribute notes sharing what your child has been doing at home.
We will also organise some open mornings or afternoons where parents can visit their child’s class and see what they are learning.
Parents are welcome to become involved in school life and we are always looking for volunteers, just let the school office know if you are interested in becoming a volunteer. Please note that if parents volunteer, they will be placed in a different class to the one their child is in. All volunteers will be subject to an enhanced DBS check. The school arranges this to be carried out at no cost.
We encourage all parents and guardians to be fully involved in their child's learning and development and we strive to provide as many opportunities as we can to support us in this quest. Every class teacher provides opportunities on at least a termly basis to be involved in a number of family learning or family enrichment sessions. This might be as simple as a Stay and Play session for parents of children who attend nursery; it might involve attending an event run by the children themselves or it might be a specific session aimed at helping children to develop better literacy or numeracy skills.
In addition to this we run a number of bespoke training/learning sessions/opportunities for families. These include:
We are proud to have a dedicated family and well-being room which is used to support children and families.
