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.

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

Stickers
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.
