Keeping you Informed
Home and School Liaison
We are eager to encourage co-operation between home and school, and welcome visits from Parents. Appointments to see Mrs Spicer or the class teacher can be made via Mrs Roberts, Admin Officer.
We will always see you at the earliest possible opportunity.
We ask you please not to go to the classroom to see the teacher during school hours or first thing in the morning to discuss a problem. It is very difficult for a teacher to talk to you properly when they are responsible for their class.
Parent Evenings are arranged each term to give you an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with the class teacher.
In the Spring Term parents of children in year 1 and 2 will be sent a written report, prior to parents evenings. School reports and the Foundation Stage Profile booklets include short term learning targets which we hope you will support with activities at home to help your child to take the next steps in their learning.
If the class teacher has concerns about your child’s progress this may generate an Individual Education Program (I.E.P.). Should this occur we will let you know. Our Special Needs Co-ordinator oversees all I.E.P.s and supports teachers in setting short term achievable targets to enable children to increase their rate of progress in line with other children. Please do not hesitate to make an appointment with Mrs Gordon the Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) if you would like to talk to her. The policy for Special Needs is available from the School Office.
ParentMail is used to forward information to parents. We use both SMS texts and email to allow us to efficiently inform parents about the latest school news and events. The school would like all parents with email access to join this scheme. This will not only dramatically cut down on the amount of paper used in the school but also the necessity of searching those bags at the end of the week for letters that were ‘forgotten’. If you have not already registered for ParentMail please contact the School Office.
Absences can also be sent via Parentmail.
Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten your ParentMail password, just pop into the School Office and they can reset it for you.
You are able to update any changes to your personal details online with Parentmail, however it is important that you please also let the School Office know of any changes in order for us to ensure that all records are up to date.
