Parents

Parent Consultation

There are two formal consultation sessions every year. These provide an opportunity for parents and teachers to meet and discuss the progress of the children. If parents have any concerns during the year however, a meeting can be arranged simply by contacting your child's teacher.

We also are pleased to welcome parents to a variety of curriculum events throughout the year.

A written report is sent to parents towards the end of each academic year and an opportunity is provided at the parent teacher consultation to discuss this report.

The Headteacher is available to see parents at any time during the year; however it is advisable to telephone the school first to make an appointment.

Unfortunately, teachers are unable to meet with parents at the beginning of the school day as they must prepare lessons and greet the class.  Just call in at the office and staff will make an appointment with the teacher as soon as possible. In an emergency please speak to the Head teacher.

Homework

Children are required to read a minimum of 3 times per week.  Children need to ensure that there reading diary has been signed by an adult at home.  Children are also encouraged to use Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars to help develop their basic skills.  Every week we have a family challenge which children are encouraged to take part in.
