We believe in long-term learning. We aim to support and encourage children’s natural desire to question and find out about the world, and to foster an enjoyment of learning that will remain with our pupils as they develop into confident life-long learners. We believe that through working in partnership with parents we can promote positive learning messages.
Our rationale is to maximise children’s learning abilities by creating a safe, secure and positive environment where children feel capable and confident and can take responsibility for their own learning.
Sharing information about children’s progress and wellbeing is important to us.
Some of the ways we do this together are:
Being open and available – we always have time to discuss your child’s progress and wellbeing and any concerns you have, this can be informally at drop off or home time or you are always welcome to make an appointment to see us after school.
Please read as often as you can with your child and use the pink home reading booklets (all children) and blue homework record books ( Hazel and Oak Class) to regularly write comments, share successes, observations or possible concerns.
Sending home a class booklet containing: a learning topic web and useful information about the class.
Providing you with an outline of national year group objectives and expectations at the beginning of each school year.
Informing you if your child has particular difficulties with learning or behaviour, or if they are not reaching age-related expectations and discussing how support can be provided
Holding 2 parents evenings a year, in the Autumn and Spring terms
Having a Celebration Evening in the Summer term, where children and parents can enjoy all the achievements of the year and visit their new classroom.
Writing an annual report (end of summer term) to let you know the progress your child has made with their learning, and what they need to focus on next. The reports will include end of Key Stage National Curriculum levels for the Year 2 and Year 6 children.
Offering you an opportunity to come in and discuss the report.
Always feel happy to share information with us that may affect your child’s wellbeing or learning in school.
