Parents’ Information

Home School Agreement

To do our best for the children we need the support and interest of parents in the education we provide. We believe children are happier and learn better when there is good communication between home and school.

This works best when the links between the two are strong. The following details the ways in which we try to make this happen:

The Home School Agreement was designed by staff, parents and governors and is signed when the child starts full time school.

Consultation Evenings

These are held in Autumn and Spring Terms and are a chance for parents and teacher to discuss the progress of their child. There is a 10 minute appointment slot per child.

Written Reports

These are issued towards the end of the summer term.

Contact with Class teachers

There is year group meeting at the beginning of every school year where the teachers outline the year group’s procedures. 

The curriculum that your child will be following can be found under the Curriculum tab on this site.

Please look at our Pupils’ Work pages for information on what the children have been learning.

We hope parents will also feel happy to approach the class teacher at any time if there are any queries or concerns about the school but the end of a day is always better for this than when the children are entering.

Contact with the Headteacher

Weekly newsletters are sent out by the Head teacher as well as a termly calendar. Appointments can always be made through the school office.


Ofsted have opened a website for parents to give their views on their child’s school. We would encourage all parents to register their views. If there is anything in particular you are concerned about please make an appointment at the school office to see Mrs Sherwood.


Assemblies/Special Event days

We will always let parents know when they can come into school for special events or the regular class assemblies.

Parent Partners

Parents who can give a regular weekly slot to help in the classrooms or library are always welcome. Help with school trips is another way parents may be able to join in with school events.

Where appropriate parents are asked to complete Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks.

Child Protection

We take safety of our children very seriously. Staff and volunteers working school have police checks. Staff are trained in child protection and we with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.


Please have a look on our policies page for our anti-bullying information, but also here is a leaflet for children designed by the children themselves.
