Parent support and involvement

Parent consultation evenings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms, with a summary of progress and targets shared at this point.  In the summer term a full written report is provided. Parents of children with SEN also receive copies of Individual Education Plans termly.

An Open Day is held each year for family and friends.  Regular events and celebrations (coffee mornings, class assemblies, sports day, Harvest, Easter, Christmas) also involve parents in the life of the school, as do fundraising events.

We believe in consulting parents for their views on school (Parent Surveys, consultations on school developments) and views are considered in any major changes. 

Transition

The school has a carefully planned strategy for supporting pupils through transition phases.  Pupils of all ages have the chance to experience transition days before a change of year group and meetings with parents support this. Additional visits and support for SEND pupils are a strength of our school – these are arranged with our Middle Schools on an the basis of individual need.

Other information

Our school has a strong belief in the importance of lifelong learning, curiosity, creativity and independent learning skills – these are embedded into all we do.

Additionally, a wide range of intervention strategies are in place, and we respond quickly to the individual needs of children using, for example, precision teaching, small group support in phonics, literacy and maths, Clever Fingers, Talkboost, Springboard maths or other relevant programmes and approaches.
