Parents as Partners

Parents are encouraged to work in partnership with school and become actively involved with school life. Examples of ways in which parents can become involved include:

    • Participating in coffee mornings, Christmas Fair, Sports Day etc.
    • All new parents are members of the PTFA – please come along to meetings, meet other parents and get involved in the life and work of the PTFA
    • Working  with  small  groups  of  children  under  the  direction  of  the teacher
    • Helping with art and craft, design and technology
    • Acting as a ‘safety patrol’ at the swimming baths
    • Assisting a teacher with an extra-curricular club
    • Assisting with concerts and performances
    • Accompanying children on educational visits
    • Representing parents on the Governing Body

Parents' Evenings

Each September there is a Welcome Meeting for parents, when each class teacher will outline the routines and curriculum for the year ahead. The school holds three parents' evenings each year, one each term, in order to keep parents informed of their child’s progress and to discuss and share any concerns. However, parents are welcome to arrange other meetings with staff at other times. Appointments can be made via the Home-School Diary or via the school office. Staff are available most days, either before or after school and can be contacted via the school office.
