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. Parents are encouraged to look at The Home Learning Policy, which used feedback from a School Council Homework Survey of pupils in Years 2 to 6.
A parent survey was carried out by the Governing Body at the end of 2018 to ask parents for their views on a range of issues we felt were important. An overview of the findings is given in a letter from Jan Blackwell, Chair of Governors and the full survey report can be downloaded here.
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.
Rights Respecting School
Since 2016 the children have been learning about the convention of the rights of the child. The School Council are helping children to improve their understanding of children’s rights across the world. You can find out more by clicking on the link on the right.
There are opportunities throughout the year to discuss your child’s progress with the class teacher. Open lessons are occasions when parents can observe and participate in a lesson with their child.
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.
