From starting school we encourage parents to support and help their child at home and at school. As they become older they will be encouraged to become independent in their learning and are asked to extend their interests. This is one of the most important aspects of school life. If together, we get the relationship between home and school right and it is much more likely that your children will have both a happy and successful time. Upon starting school all parents are asked to read and sign the Home School Agreement.
We encourage pupils to enhance their learning through activities at home which can include projects, models, web based games and logging into educational activities directed by the school.
Parents are welcome to come into school to discuss concerns and worries at all times.
Sometimes we host information events for you to attend. The curriculum is ever changing and the methods that we use to teach the children are constantly evolving and that is why we run these sessions. They help you to understand in much greater depth what your child experiences in school every day. Naturally this helps you to support your child in their learning much more. I know that you will find them very worthwhile.
Parents are welcome to visit the school at any time. Personal arrangements can be made to visit the school, please telephone 0115 9757745 or call in at the school office to arrange a convenient time. Where possible, we will try to see you straightaway but in some cases it may be necessary to make an appointment for later on that same day or another.
Parents are welcome on school trips in order to share in the learning and experiences of their children. Trips are organized termly.
