Communication With Parents
We try to keep parents up to date with both school events and their child’s progress during their time with us. Below are various ways we keep in touch with parents.
If you need to contact a member of staff, please call into the school office. Our office staff will be happy to make you an appointment. Alternatively you can telephone the school office on 01932 785 477 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
For non urgent information (reminders of school trips, up coming events etc) we are able to text parents. This service will also be used for extraordinary events, i.e. unexpected school closures. The text message service sends a message to the mobile telephone number of the person named as No. 1 contact. Please ensure that we have your up to date details.
Newsletters are sent out regularly via e-mail. If you think you may have missed a newsletter, these can all be found on our school website.
There is an opportunity for parents to meet teaching staff to discuss their child’s progress twice a year, October and March. Details of these Parent Consultation Meetings are sent out on our newsletters and appointments can be made online. If you wish to discuss your child’s progress at any other time, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Show and Share Afternoons
This is an informal opportunity to see the ‘working school’, where children can explain learning in their exercise books, in artwork and through items on display. The children are rightly proud of their efforts and wish for more occasions to share these with parents, grandparents, carers and siblings.
Parent Class Representatives
As part of our ongoing commitment to working with parents, each class is represented by a parent to form a partnership group The group meets regularly with the Executive Headteacher and senior staff to provide an informal forum to discuss school.
