Parents

 

We value the views of all parents. Both the Principal and the staff are always on hand to listen and help. Parents have opportunities to share their thoughts through informal chats, parents groups, home/academy appointments and questionnaires.

Other ways to be involved ......

 

Parents Days/Evenings

These are held three times a year and we regard them as very important. They provide an opportunity for you to discuss your child’s progress with their teacher and see samples of work. We strongly urge you to come to every parents’ evening. During the Summer Term parents are invited to the academy to receive their child’s annual report.

 

Class Assembly

Every term each class takes turn in presenting the assembly. We invite parents to join us for this assembly. We hope you will come, particularly if it is your child’s turn to lead.

 

Communication with Parents

Letters and newsletters are sent home weekly, informing parents about what is going on in our academy. If you have any concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to discuss these with your child’s class teacher. If you have any other concerns the Principal will be happy to discuss them with you.

 

How you can help us to help your child

It is vital that you as parents and we as teachers work together for your child’s benefit. Each family is asked to sign and support an agreement so that everyone is clear and equally committed to giving your child the best possible education.

 

How you can help in school

We are very pleased to welcome parents into our academy who can find the time to spend an hour or two working alongside teachers and children. Here are a few ways in which you can help…

fund raising    listening to readers 

supporting academy teams

helping on academy visits helping with extra curricular activities helping in class

 

Helping your child at home

Parents are very important people and support from them and other family members can make all the difference. The most important way to help your child is to let them know that you take an interest in what they do whilst attending our academy.

Perhaps by:

  • Giving plenty of praise and encouragement
  • Reading with them at home
  • Attending Parents Evenings
  • Encouraging good manners and behaviour
