Meeting the Teachers
Each term there are formal opportunities at parents’ evenings for you to meet your child's teacher to discuss on a one to one basis the progress your child is making. A termly report is sent home so that parents/carers are informed regularly about the progress and attainment of your child/ren. Parents/carers are most welcome to contact teachers informally whenever the need arises. We very much have an ‘open door’ policy and we are here to help if you want to share information or have a concern to discuss.
Involvement in Class
We actively encourage parents/carers to get involved with the school in any way they can. Our school is very much a small family community and in turn part of a wider community. If you want to help in any way, just ask! Parents/carers are welcome in school to assist in a variety of activities, such as reading, small group work, craft activities, cooking, gardening, school visits etc.
