Communication with Parents

Class Assemblies
Every class will celebrate the work the children have done for that term during their class assembly. We always look forward to having all the parents and carers present.

Open Afternoon
Usually on the first Friday after every half term from 2:30pm – 3:30pm, you will be invited to the school to look around your child’s classroom as well as look at their work. This will be your chance to familiarise yourself with your child’s progress. Please note that this is not for consultation with the class teacher. The Open Afternoon is placed at this point in the term in readiness for the Parent / Teacher Consultation Evening which usually happens two weeks later. A blank appointment schedule will be available in your child’s class for you to fill in for a slot convenient to you.  This is filled on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Parent / Teacher Consultation Evening
This event occurs three times per school year. The meetings consist of a 15 minute slot where you can chat with your child’s class teacher about their attainment and progress. Appointments are booked with the class teacher. You will be notified nearer the time.

Parents’ View Coffee Morning
Parents’ View Coffee Mornings happen on Thursdays from 8:50am – 9:10am, focusing on one year group at a time. It’s an opportunity for the parents of pupils in that class to discuss any issues that may be of general concern. Present at each meeting will be the class teacher, a member of the senior leadership team and occasionally a Governor. This takes place in the School House over a cup of tea, coffee and biscuits. It is important for parents to remember that these sessions should not be seen as avenues for public complaint. Our policy makes it clear that the class teacher should be approached in the first instance if a parent is worried about their child’s schooling.

In the summer term (July) we have an end of year parents’ school evaluation exercise where parents’ views will be sort.

Monday Prayer Meeting
Some Christian parents hold a Monday Prayer Meeting every week, from 8:50am – 9:10am. This provides them the opportunity to pray about all aspects of our school. Please join them in the School House on Mondays, if you feel able to do so.

We look forward to seeing you at some or even all of these school events.
