Parents and Family
Research shows that links between you and your child’s school improves their enjoyment and chances of doing well. The more you know about what your child is learning, the more you can offer support.
We involve you in your child’s education through:
- regular parent newsletters
- letters to parents to update you on big news or changes
- parent surveys – online and written surveys will be used to gain parents’ views on the school and on specific projects. You can also tell Ofsted what you think, on Parent View.
- parents evenings – these are held each term for you to meet with your child’s class teacher about your child’s progress, behaviour and targets for future success.
- information evenings, held throughout the year to discuss any education changes that may affect your children
- open days and evenings, which also allow you to meet staff and visit our facilities.
We will let you know about all upcoming events, which you can also find on our upcoming events page.
In the Autumn Term we have started ‘Coffee Mornings’ with parents, leading to establishing a formal group giving parents a voice.
If you want to volunteer more time with us, you could become a parent governor. The school’s governing body includes a number of parent governors who are there to represent parents and to have a say in the strategic decision-making of the school.
At the moment we don’t have any vacancies for parent governors. Please contact us if you would like to an express interest. In the meantime, please visit the National Governors’ Association website to find out more about becoming a parent governor.
