Working with parents is crucial if children are to be the best they can be. We will involve parents in different ways during the course of the year and would be delighted if you would be able to attend any of the events offered.
In the first instance, your child's teacher is the person who knows your child best and, therefore, if you have any queries or concerns, please arrange to see the class teacher at a mutually convenient time. (It is not possible for parents to speak to teachers at class handover times as the teacher must first and foremost safeguard all children.)
If you have raised an issue with the class teacher but still have concerned, please arrange an appointment with Mrs. Williams, Senior Leader, or Miss ElSaghier, Deputy Head. Mrs. Middleton is available, by appointment where the need arises.
Parent/ Teacher Interviews-
As a parent, you are welcome to arrange a meeting about your child at any time. We will also offer a termly opportunity to meet with your child's teacher to discuss their progress. These meetings will be held after school but, if you wish to meet at a different time, please contact the school office.
Each class will perform a termly Learning Assembly so that parents can have an overview of their child's learning. This also ensures that children develop confidence in themselves so that, as adults, if required to do presentations, they will have had plenty of opportunity to practise public speaking.
As a school, we are passionate about children having chance to participate in the arts. Each year group will be involved in putting together their own Christmas show.
Following class assemblies, parents will be able to remain behind to look at the books of Year2 - 6. This is a chance for children to discuss their work with you so that you can also see any errors they are making that you could support with and can also see areas of strength.
This is a means of engaging parents on a daily basis. it is a way that we can show off what children are involved in but can also communicate any matters arising to you.
'Seeing is Believing' and 'Lesson with your Child' will be offered to some parents later in the year. 'Seeing Is Believing' is a tour of the school when it is in motion, with an assembly and a chance to have refreshments with Mrs. Middleton to hear about any exciting initiatives or developments.
