Communication is vital and we have a range of methods for keeping everyone in touch with what's going on. Current parents can log into the Parent Portal to access everything they've been sent - in one place!
Face to Face
The beginning and end of the day are a chance for informal chats - these are welcomed. Please approach staff for a ‘quick word’ when you need to. Should an extended discussion be necessary, then appointments may be made.
Introductory Evenings are held in the first few weeks of the new academic year for Kindergarten to Year 3. These give an insight into what we do and how we do it! Often interactive and always involving discussion, they give plenty of chance for parents to get a real sense of what the next year will hold for their child.
Parents’ Evenings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms. Pre-Prep parents book an appointment time with the class teacher. It is a good opportunity to see some of the splendid work that the children have produced so it is worth coming earlier than the allotted time to take a good look round at the wonderful displays (see the Tweedle twins left) and to have the chance to go through your child’s books.
Prep Parents’ Evenings allow time to speak to the subject specialists and form teacher as they become free.
Staff are always willing to discuss your child’s progress between meetings if you should have any concerns or positive feedback.
Our School newsletter Notes From The Head is emailed weekly. This gives a weekly briefing on what’s been going on from Kindergarten through to Year 6, includes pictures and match reports and flags up what’s coming next - there’s always lots going on!
We use text and email messaging via our Clarion Call system to provide updates and reminders; stored on our Parent Portal, they are easy to refer to.
Reports A full written report is sent to parents of every child at the end of the Summer Term. Effort and attainment grades are sent out half-termly to parents of Prep children.
Parents’ Handbook Filled with all of the detail that you need, it is accessible via the Parent Portal.
