So that we can keep parents and carers well informed about school life and 'What's On', we communicate within a variety of ways, as follows:
Face To Face
A friendly welcoming face will always greet you each morning as you arrive at school. A member of staff will be at the classroom door once the entrance door has opened at 8.30am and Miss De Filippis is often in the playground to greet you. Mrs Hazzard is available to help in the office. If you wish to see your child’s class teacher or Miss De Filippis, please make an appointment at the office. We will try to accommodate as soon as possible.
The school newsletter is issued each week and provides information about recent events, arrangements, interesting community news as well as a message from Miss De Filippis. Please read the newsletter each week so you keep up with what is happening at the school; things can change very quickly! You can also find copies of current and past newsletters on the website under Parents/Newsletters.
The school office will send text reminders to parents and carers for more urgent communication. If there is a last minute change, this will usually be how we communicate it to our parents.
If the school is closed due to bad weather or an emergency, we will aim to text you by 7.00am and it will also be posted on our website. If we need to close early we will contact you by text.
The yearly calendar is found on our website which provides an overview of the year ahead. We do send out a printed version of the calendar at the start of each term, however, as this is printed in advance, please be aware that dates and events may well change. Please always check the website calendar for the latest information.
Parent Consultation Evenings
These are organised in the Autumn and Spring terms and offer parents and carers an individual appointment to discuss your child’s progress.
Come and See My Learning
Once a term, you have the opportunity to come into your child's class and see their books. This is a very informal session, usually before the end of the school day.
We use Tapestry in the reception class and ClassDojo to update you on children's learning and celebrate their learning and development. Please see the curriculum tab for further information.
End of Year School Reports
School reports are quite comprehensive and detail what your child has achieved and inform you of their next steps.
In the event that your child is ill and cannot attend school, please telephone us on 01483 810317 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by 9.00am to let us know.
