"I think it is great that parents are encouraged to get involved as I see it as teamwork between school and parents to give the child the best education. I also think it is fantastic to have a very approachable head who still has an active role with the children as well as leads the team."
Parent Survey comment 2014
Parents of children at the school can also express their views to Ofsted on parentview. You will need to register on the Ofsted web page.
Results on parentview can be viewed by anyone.
We have an open door policy and we provide class newsletters, curriculum evenings and a weekly newsletter in order to keep parents fully informed. Almost 100% of the parents attend our twice yearly parent consultations. We actively encourage parents to express their views to help us to identify areas for development. We are also fortunate to have a strong PTA, which supports the school in many ways, including the raising of large sums of money to enhance children’s learning.
To support children's learning at home, we subscribe to home access for Espresso which can be accessed via a school user name and password. This is a website with resources for all areas of the curriculum which we use regularly in school. All children also have an individual user name and password for MyMaths and for Purple Mash. Do ask at school for these.
The majority of our parents now pay for school lunches and trips via parent pay. Do ask Cheryl in the office for a log in if you would find this service helpful. It does mean that you can keep track of all your payments and saves us from having too much cash in school.
Our children's attendance is very important to us. A leaflet for parents about managing illness is available here: Illness Leaflet for parents
