Helping your child

Parents are invited into school for work shares periodically throughout the school year.  This is good practice to involve the parents and for the parents to see how the curriculum is being taught.  Parent evenings are held twice a year in January and October – a chance for parents to see their children’s work and to share information.  If you have any concerns outside of these appointments, please make an appointment with the Class Teacher at a convenient time for yourself and the teacher.  Reception parents are invited into school on a Monday from 3.10 – 3.45 to the working party to look at phonics, maths and handwriting.
