How parents can help

The relationship that our school has with parents is vitally important.  We regularly send home letters and newsletters detailing an array of information about up-coming events and activities.  We urge parents to look out for any communications that are sent home either via your child or via text/email.

Other ways parents are able to help are:

  • Please regularly read with your child at home.
  • Please practice spellings and times tables with your child weekly.
  • Please look at your child's home learning diary daily; this is a useful tool where messages can be exchanged between school and home and vice versa.
  • Please look at any homework your child has been asked to complete, we encourage parents to talk to their children about any homework they receive.

In the Autumn and Spring terms there are parent/teacher consultation evenings which provide an opportunity to discuss your child's work and their progress.  We encourage parents to book an appointment as soon as you receive notification about these evenings.

Parents are more than welcome to see their child's teacher at any time throughout the school year, either in the morning or after school.  Please feel free to contact to the school office if you would like to book an appointment at any other time.  If you have an issue which you prefer not to discuss with the class teacher, the Year Leader is the next person to contact.  Alternatively, you can call into reception and ask to speak to Mr Lumber or Mrs Amabile at about 8.45am.

Finally, we often ask for parent volunteers to come into school to listen to children read, or to help us with trips and events.  If you would like to volunteer please look out for volunteer requests via letter, email or text; alternatively please pop into the school office.
