The partnership that we have with parents and carers is really important to us. We try to make sure that there are lots of opportunities for parents to come into school.
Termly parents meetings
At our parent meetings we give at least half an hour to every parent or carer and child so that we can have quality time to really talk about children’s learning. We call these our “All About Me” sessions. The sessions normally take place during the school day. However, we do realise that this isn’t always convenient for working parents and will always re-arrange an “All About Me” session at a convenient time.
Parent and carer workshops
We know that being a parent of a school age child can sometimes feel like a full time job, and all the changes to education can be hard to keep up with. We run sessions for parents to help them understand the way we teach maths and reading in school so that you can support your child at home. We also arrange talks so you can find out more about other issues such as how to keep your child safe online, changes to benefits systems and other important issues.
Craft, art and design sessions
Once a term we arrange an open afternoon where parent s and carers can come into school to work alongside their children in the classroom. These are really busy and popular and have a great atmosphere. We look forward to meeting you at our next session.
Parents and carers lunchtimes
Our school council, and Mrs Squiers, arrange regular opportunities for parents and carers to come in and experience a school lunch. It’s a chance to see the great range of activities we have on offer and to sample a school dinner. Keep your eyes open for the invitations.
If you want to drop in for a biscuit, a cuppa and a chat we would love to see you on Tuesday afternoons from 2.30 in the dining hall.
Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
This is a group of parents who regularly get together with staff to plan special activities to raise money or just provide a bit of a social event for the school community. We call ourselves the FUN (Friends Unite for Norfolk) group. Look out for our page on the website to find out when our next meeting is being held. Come along if you want to find out more!
This isn’t the full list – so keep your eyes open for the next opportunity to come into school and work with your children.
