Working with You
We welcome parents and carers into our school, recognising that we are partners in the education of your children. Your input and feedback is greatly valued.
We communicate with you in a variety of ways, via texts, emails, fortnightly newsletters, questionnaires, workshops and informal social events. Parents are regularly invited to whole-school and year-group assemblies, Parents’ Evenings and other events where the work and achievements of pupils is showcased. We have a home school agreement that expresses our commitment to work with you to ensure that your child is happy and successful.
Staff will always be happy to meet with pare you to share any concerns. We also have a dedicated Family Liaison Worker who supports children, families and the partnership between home and school, and fosters a shared dialogue. The School’s website holds a wealth of information including our newsletters, calendar, class pages and copies of key policies.
The school provides pupils with good care, guidance and support. Ofsted
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, and their achievement of age related expectations; 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 know that joining our school and leaving us seven years later for a secondary school are two incredibly significant events for our pupils. We listen to what you tell us about your child and make sure that we support you if their future teachers will benefit from knowing more about them as an individual.
The first point of contact regarding concerns should always be the class teacher. Appointments to see teachers are available both before and after school and may be made via the office. Please bear in mind though that teachers require time immediately before school to prepare for the day, and may have involvement with clubs or staff meetings after school, so may not always be available at short notice.
When meeting with the class teacher please be patient, they may need time to investigate or put corrective measures in place and then determine their effectiveness. This informal stage may require several meetings to reach a conclusion satisfactory to all parties.
If your concern has not been solved through discussions with the class teacher, or that it is of a sufficiently serious nature, then an appointment to discuss it with the Headteacher should be made via the school office.
