Policies and Resources

Communicating with Parents

Good communication is very important in ensuring that your child gets the most out of their time at our school.

We will use the following methods of sharing information with you:

Parent Partnership Meetings
Termly meetings during which the plans for the term and targets are shared.

These come out every month and contain important information about things that are going on at school.

If a child has a small accident or problem we may put a sticker on their jumper as a reminder for them to tell you about it.

Phone calls home
If there is a more important issue we will phone you to inform you.

1 to 1 Meetings
From time to time we have a concern that means we invite parents to meet with us, likewise you may have a concern we would welcome you contacting us to arrange a meeting. Parents sometimes think that these meetings are a little scary, but we want to assure you that we always want to do what is best for the children in our care and we will go to great lengths to work with you to ensure that your child is safe, happy and achieves their best.

Class Dojo

As a school, Class Dojo is used as a communication tool.  All parents are given a log in and are able to view their child’s Dojo points (rewards and sanctions) and message the class teacher directly.

You’ll see the “Story” of our classroom and our school: photos and videos of big moments, important updates, plus your child’s digital portfolio.  You can also view a “report” of your child’s feedback for skills we are encouraging in class. Class Dojo also allows you to send a direct message to your child’s teacher and for them to message you too.

The feedback we have received from parents is very positive.  Please let us know if you need any help setting it up.

Busy Last Week Ahead!

As we enter our last week before the summer holidays, we have lots going on including our lovely head, Mrs Swann, saying goodbye to us!  Here are some of the events:

  • Monday sees children meeting their new teachers and classmates in the afternoon.
  • Tuesday is our sponsored fun run in aid of Cancer Research where children are asked to come wearing in pink or blue clothes suitable for running.  Later that morning, Sports Awards will be presented.
  • Reading treats will be taking place for different year groups throughout the week
  • Year 6 continue to rehearse for their leavers' assembly which will be presented to parents and carers at 10am on Friday, 21st July in the hall (there will be a DVD of the performance to order).  Some of our year sixes will also be representing the school at the regional atheletics final on Thursday.
  • We are having a whole school picnic on Thursday at lunchtime to celebrate our time with Mrs Swann - don't forget packed lunches!
  • There is a special lunch on Friday, chosen by the year sixes, on their last day of primary school.

There's lots more going on besides so do keep an eye on Dojo for messages from individual teachers and for information on whole school activities.



Children's Choice Issue 7 - Hot off the press

The latest issue of our online newspaper by children, for children is available here.  It's well worth a read and contains reports on what we have been up to in school, interesting facts and interviews with staff and pupils.  Happy reading.
