Get Involved

There are a number of opportunities throughout the year for you to come into school to speak to the teacher or to see what your child is doing in class.

Each phase hold Welcome Meetings at the start of the year.  This is a good time to meet the teacher and to find out about the changes in expectations for the coming year.

Each term there will be a themed Parent Workshop where you will be invited in to work with your child and to catch up with the teacher.

Parent Drop-ins are also a regular feature on the school calendar.  This gives you the chance to become a ‘fly on the wall’ in class.

We also hold an Autumn term and Spring Term Parents’ Evening.  This is organised via an appointment system.  You can find out about your child’s progress and attainment and ask their teacher any questions you may have.  The Autumn Term meeting is on Wednesday 30th November 2016.

We hope to see you getting involved with the events at school.  Letting your child’s teacher know what time is best will enable us to reach as many of you as possible.

Please look out for newsletters and Twitter updates with dates and times!
