Working with families

We believe that a strong partnership between home and school is an important way to support children’s learning. As part of our work, we liaise closely with families in the following ways:

  • Home school agreement
  • Twice yearly reports
  • Termly consultation meetings
  • Several family events throughout the year
  • Newsletters from classes and the headteacher
  • Homework that informs families of work/ skills covered in school for all subjects
  • Parent questionnaires- annual
  • Informal and formal meetings with families upon request
  • Parent Friend and Teacher Association (PFTA)
  • Parent Governors
  • Use of ‘Parent Working Parties’ – for specific areas requiring more focussed liaison such as Homework and Sex and Relationship Education

Parent Working Party

As a result of feedback from families on our annual questionnaires, working parties are set up to support different development areas such as: homework; feedback to parents; development of a Sex and Relationship Education policy and home reading. Requests for parents willing to be part of these working parties are shared in newsletters.
