Information evenings

Throughout the academic year there are a number of opportunities to meet your child's teacher. Teachers are available after school on most afternoons and go to the playground to meet and talk to families. Parents and carers can contact staff at anytime to make appointments. Beyond this we also hold more formal sessions across the year.

During the Autumn term we invite parents and carers to our first information evening of the academic year. The Headteacher and senior leaders deliver a presentation to share key information that includes the school vision, priorities, expectations and phase specific information. Parents and carers then have the opportunity to visit their child’s teacher and view books. The aim of this session is to set the tone for the year and also discuss transition and settling into their new classes. This is an informal evening, but it also enables families to view classrooms and learning environments around the school.

During the Spring term we hold a more formal parent’s evening in which parents and carers are given an individual appointment. This enables the teacher and parent / carer to discuss progress so far, the work in their books and further progress towards their targets.

Finally, in the Summer term and following the end of year reports, parents and carers are once again invited into school to meet with teachers. There is an option to make a formal appointment and also the opportunity to view work and celebrate the children’s progress and achievements from across the year. Importantly, it is also an early opportunity for you to meet with your child’s new teacher for the next academic year as we hold this evening during our transition time.

Workshops

We offer a range of workshops to support parents and carers. These are spread across the year and include examples such as 'Stay and Learn,' reading, assessment, phonics and maths. During our termly 'Stay and Learn' sessions we focus on different curriculum areas, often linked to suggestions from parents from surveys and previous sessions. All powerpoints are added to the website as a further resource to support learning at home.
