Parents' Area

Parents have a vital role to play.  We see the education of the children as a partnership between the school and you.  We send out newsletters on alternate Wednesdays during term time as well as publishing them on the School Newsletters page in the News & Events area.

Although teachers are usually available at the start or end of the school day to discuss urgent matters that can be dealt with quickly, they are often preparing resources before school and we encourage parents to see them after school whenever possible.  The Headteacher is usually available at these times too.  If you feel more time is needed it is best to make an appointment which can be done through either the school office, or by emailing the class teacher directly.

We encourage the children to be proud of their achievements in school but we are aware that parents may not get to see all of it.  To try and address this, we have an "open classroom" session between 3:00 (3:15 for juniors) and 3:30 on every Monday afternoon during term time.  All parents are invited to come in at these times to see their child's work in the classrooms.

In the Autumn and Spring Terms parent teacher consultations are held.  These are prearranged appointments when you are invited to discuss how your child is getting on at school.

We welcome parents who have time to come and help with various activities, e.g. reading, cooking, sewing, computing etc.  If you would like to help please let the office know.  All parents belong to the Parent Teacher Association.  This organisation consists of parents, teachers and governors and runs a number of events each year, e.g. Discos, Quiz Nights, Summer Fayre, Winter Fair, Barbecues etc. to raise funds for the school.  The money received from these events gets spent on projects chosen by the PTA committee, making a big difference to the facilities that are available to the children.  Over the past years the PTA has been responsible for refurbishing the library, providing the wooden play apparatus and supporting the school ICT suite.  The committee is elected at the AGM in the summer term and more details of its events and operation can be found in the dedicated PTA section of the Parents Area.  The PTA also issue a newsletter on a regular basis, and these can be found in the PTA Newsletters section of the News & Events area.
