Parents as Partners
We recognise and fully embrace the important role that parents have in their child’s education and strive to work in partnership with you. We believe that continual involvement is crucial to successful learning.
We aim to keep parents informed about your child’s progress and achievements, share any concerns or difficulties promptly, as they arise.
We hold twice yearly ‘Care and Learning’ meetings with our parents where you will have an opportunity to see your child’s Learning Journey and share any concerns and ask any questions you may have. Parents are also invited throughout the year to attend our ‘Stay, Play and Learn’ sessions where you will join us for a morning or an afternoon. This provides a wonderful opportunity for you to see your child in the Early Learning and Childcare environment. We also welcome parents at our open evenings, concerts, sports day, workshops and our many fundraising events throughout the year.
We believe that children learn best when we work in partnership with their parents. We love to share with you the learning that has taken place at home and we send home regular ‘look what I can do’ sheets to give you the opportunity to record and share with us your child’s progress. We find that the children love to share their home learning with their teachers and friends, and this also provide opportunities for us to enhance prior learning. Your child will also have a personalised learning target which we will make you aware of and encourage that this be something we work on together.
We also aim to send home your child’s Learning Journey every term and love to hear your comments and feedback plus any suggestions for future learning that you may have. We pride ourselves on having an ‘open door policy‘ and work hard to create an environment where you feel able, at any point, to approach a staff member for an informal chat. Please do not hesitate to chat to us, at any time about any concerns or questions you may have.
