We welcome your interest!
We believe that parental involvement in education offers enormous benefits both to the individual child and the school as a whole.
A parents’ role is crucial in the education of their own child. It can also be highly supportive in a wider sense to all children in school, either through involvement in classroom activities or through fundraising.
Parental involvement is valued both in terms of in-school support and also direct support at home. We offer workshop sessions to support your involvement at whatever level you require. Whether you are interested in learning more about how we teach reading or would like to help plan a fundraising or extended schools programme, we encourage you to speak to us about it.
Usually teachers can be contacted at the start and end of each day. We have an open door policy so please see your child’s teacher at your earliest convenience.
Parents’ evenings are held during the year when you are invited to come and look at your child’s work and discuss his/her progress with the class teacher. We do, of course, appreciate your interest at other times and are happy to report progress informally if required. Other meetings are held for specific groups to explain testing procedures, home reading meetings etc
A parents' role is also crucial in helping school maintain good attendance. Attendance is important to give each child the best chance of achieving their goals.
