We are committed to working with parents to ensure every child can succeed. The more parents know about school, the more they can support their child at home. The more the school understands each child, the better we can meet their needs. This is our partnership. The Home Learning Policy is a useful guide for parents. The policy is reviewed annually taking on board the views of the children and their parents as well as teachers.
Teachers post home learning activities on interactive digital learning platforms, Tapestry for Infants and SeeSaw for Juniors. Class weekly newsletters which summarise learning for the week and anticipate the coming week’s key themes are emailed by Parentmail.
Helping your child to be a visible learner
Educational Consultant, Helen Blanchard visited the school on 21 November 2018. Parents found out how they can help their children to become visible learners. Please see Newsline November Issue 4 for a report on the visit, her full presentation is available to download here.
Keeping Parents Informed
There are opportunities throughout the year to discuss your child’s progress with the class teacher. There are also Open Lessons, occasions when parents can observe and participate in a lesson with their child; and Open Afternoons when parents and grandparents can come into school and see the children’s work.
How this partnership works is summarised in the Home School Accord. Parents and children are asked to read through this document and sign it. The headteacher signs it on behalf of all the staff of the school.
