Communication with Parents

  • A full staffing structure of the school is available on the school website and within the school prospectus. 


  • Key staff such as the Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator and Deputy Head Teacher  are made known to parents/carers.


  • Parents and carers are welcome in school.  Appointments are made for specific meetings, however should a parent arrive to see someone unannounced we will do our best to ensure someone is available to respond to  the query.  Parents are made aware that the Headteacher offers a 'drop-in' session every Thursday morning.


  • Communication between staff and parents / carers can be arranged as required.  


  • For information about pupil progress parents are invited to parents evening twice a year.  Specific information can be gathered from the Head Teacher on an individual basis.


  • School seeks parents/carers views and feedback anecdotally, via specific communication, annual questionnaires and sign post to the Ofsted parent view website.


  • All September admissions will have a transition visit in the Summer Term to become familiar with staff, other peers and their school environment. Those joining mid year are offered the opportunity for transition visits if appropriate. 


  • We hold meetings for new parents in the Early Years Foundation Stage in June/July followed by 'tadpole' induction afternoons (which include a stay and play session for parents).   In September, parents get an additional opportunity to meet one to one with the class teacher.  Children have a staggered start to the term over a two week period.


  • There is a Parents and Friend Association and families are encouraged to actively support and participate.


  • The Head Teacher welcomes feedback about the school on any issue.


  • School has a weekly newsletter (sent via email or a hard copy if requested) to keep parents informed and regular updates are on the school website.
