Great customer service, working with “Parents as Partners” and offering first-class Family Support are at the heart of what we do. Here’s a bit more information about that our offer…
Parents as Partners
We cannot emphasise how much we value the support and involvement of parents in all aspects of their child’s learning. The more you connect with us, the better your child will do. Children who do best at school are those whose teachers and parents work seamlessly together. We feel the phrase, “Parents as Partners” sums up this ethos very nicely.
Talk to Us
There will be times when you are unsure about the work we are doing or when you may not agree with us, at such times please come and talk with us. Small concerns often grow into larger problems if not tackled immediately.
Paul Jordan is usually available in the mornings from 8-30am or you might prefer to make an appointment. Teaching staff will be in the playground each morning to address any minor issues, but if you need to talk about your child’s progress, please arrange to see them after school when they will be able to give you more time.
Our Family Inclusion Team
Our role extends far beyond supporting just your child. Our Family Inclusion Team consists of dedicated professionals, trained to offer you advice and support – from whatever your own starting point might be. We work closely with other agencies too, helping ever child – and their family – achieve their best!
We place ourselves at the Heart of the Community. Over the course of the School year, you’ll find that we run a wide range of big family events: from our Dance-a-thon, to Cooking with Claire and from our Parenting Courses to Learning Together drop-ins… we pride ourselves on much we actively seek your involvement.
You will have an opportunity to meet staff at parents evenings held each term. We usually hold open meetings once each term, over two days. This allows us to give each parent a reasonable amount of time. Please try to come at these times, but if it is really impossible contact the school and we will make alternative arrangements.
In July all children in the school will receive a written report of their progress in the National Curriculum and all aspects of school life. You will be invited to attend a meeting with your child’s teacher to discuss the report.
We send out lots of information, although for the most part this takes place electronically.
The Agreement sets out the schools commitment to your child and the action parents should take to support us. We take seriously our responsibility to offer your child the best education possible.
