School, Parents and Children – A Partnership

We firmly believe that a partnership between home and school is essential for all involved in the education process. All the staff are happy to see parents throughout the year to discuss any problems (or indeed successes). Sometimes it may be necessary to make an appointment.

If you have any concerns whatsoever please tell us immediately. As stated earlier the success of a school depends on a partnership and one of the key partners are you, the parents. You can help in a variety of ways – by becoming involved in the Governing Body, by giving practical support in the classroom, by supporting your own child’s learning at home (which means keeping up to date with curriculum and other developments) and, of course, by becoming involved in the Parents Meetings.

We are keen to involve parents in classroom activities and have arrangements for voluntary helpers. Parents, and others helping in the school add significantly to the quality of education and remove some of the pressure from teachers. Both Governors and Teachers gratefully acknowledge this help.

The school issues regular newsletters to parents to keep them abreast of what is going on day to day. We send home questionnaires from time to time.

We would like to say thank you to the parents for their work in supporting the school and look forward to forging stronger links in the year ahead. At present we do not have a PTA; any parents wishing to become involved in organising fundraising activities would be most welcome!
