Home School Agreement
We ask you to read this carefully and discuss it with your child before signing the copy and returning it to school. It provides a framework for parents, school and children to work together in partnership to achieve the best possible education for each child. Download here
There are opportunities each term for parents to discuss their child with staff. These discussions take place in private and appointments are made at 10-minute intervals.
Autumn Term Opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, learn about expectations etc.
Spring Term Individual targets are set with children and shared with parents. In year 2 and 6 consultations may take place earlier in the term to enable parents to discuss progress towards SATs.
Summer Term Open school sessions allow parents to share the work of their children. Reports are sent home in July.
In Years 5 and 6 children are encouraged to attend parents’ evenings with their parents.
Parents may arrange to talk with the class teacher or the headteacher whenever there is something relating to their child they wish to discuss.
Curriculum evenings are held during the school year to inform parents of new initiatives and the best ways in which to help their child.
Adults Helping in School
There are many ways in which adults can help in school. Please let class teachers know if you can offer the odd half- hour, morning or afternoon. There will always be things you can help with!!
All adults working with children must be CRB checked to ensure the safety of our children.
Parents working in school must respect the confidentiality of both children and staff. Parents should not talk about children’s behaviour or ability to other parents outside of school. Teachers will inform parents of any behaviour issues at the end of the school day, if they feel it is necessary.
Thank you for your continued help and support. It is very much appreciated.
School reports are sent home annually in July. These provide you with a record of your child’s progress, the work covered during the school year and future targets. Annual assessments form part of the report for all children.
All children are expected to carry out some work at home. This is completed in a homework book. Tasks will always include reading, which is a vital skill even for the most fluent readers. Literacy, Numeracy and research work will form the basis of each child’s homework. Our Homework Policy includes details of the amount of time to be spent on tasks at home, according to age and year group. Sometimes it may be felt that extra help is needed in a particular subject and you would be informed of this. Your co-operation in helping at home is appreciated. Please ask if you need further advice.
