Parent Involvement

Class Representatives

Each class has parent representatives who help coordinate activities with guidance from class teachers, this role can be singular or shared. Class representatives meet regularly with members of the Senior Leadership Team to act as a liason between parents and the school.


Parent Helpers

We encourage parents /carers to come and support learning at school. Both mums and dads / carers may come and work with individuals, small groups or admin/ support tasks. This may be in their own child’s class or supporting whole school initiatives, for example being a Reading buddy (working closely with a few individual readers) or helping in special events. Parents are offered annual training in how they can support in class.

If you would like to become a parent helper please speak to your child's class teacher.


Parent and Toddler GROUP

Our parent and toddler group offers an opportunity for pre-nursery aged children along with their parents and carers to meet once a week. The gatherings take place in our community room and offers sociable play facilities for the children along with networking for the adults. There is a very small weekly charge for each session to cover the cost of tea, coffee and biscuits. The sessions are led by parents with children in our school.

Sessions are held on Thursdays, starting around 9am and ending at 10.30am. Please contact the school office for further details.


reporting to parents

Parents are invited to share in their children's success and celebrate their progress termly through parent consultations. In the Summer term teachers write a report on each child's work, progress and achievements and parents have an opportunity to come and discuss this.


Home school partnership

We have a strong partnership with parents/carers and value their support and involvement in many aspects of school life.  Children, parents and staff sign homes school agreements to ensure to clear roles and responsibilities towards each other.

The first contact with the school that many parents have is the initial prospective parents meeting, when parents are shown around by members of the Senior Leadership Team and invited to ask questions about the organisation of the school and about the curriculum.

Parents of children due to start at this school in the Nursery or Reception will be visited by staff. This enables staff, parents and children to get to know each other in an informal way. We hope that seeing a familiar face on their first day will give children a happy and relaxed start to their time in Nursery/Reception.

At the beginning of the school year meetings are held to inform parents of class plans for the coming year. We hold termly parent/carer evenings when staff are available to discuss children's progress. In addition appointments can be made at other times for parents to see members of staff. Currriculum meetings are held regularly, informing parents about mathematics, reading, writing or other areas requested by parents.

Each year group produces a weekly curriculum sheet to help parents to support at home.
