We welcome, encourage and actively seek to promote positive home/school relations.
If you have a concern, a question about school procedures or if there is a matter which may have a bearing upon your child or the school as a whole, we would be pleased if you would speak to a member of staff sooner rather than later. Teachers are available each morning or at the end of the day. These times are ideal for a quick word. Alternatively, you can telephone the school office to arrange an appointment for a longer discussion at a mutually convenient time. Discussions over the telephone can also be arranged if work commitments make it impossible to attend a ‘face-to-face’ talk.
If there is ever a significant school issue with which you are unhappy, we would always encourage you to come in to school to talk to the Headteacher. If you are still worried, you can contact the Department of Education, Sport and Culture for further advice. We hope you never have to use it, but there is a link to the DESC complaints procedure on the school website.
At the beginning of each half term, an information sheet is sent home giving an overview of the areas of study in the ensuing half term and includes tips of how you can help your child's learning at home.
Newsletters can be sent electronically, but are also sent home in hard copy form regularly to those who indicate that they would prefer this method of communication. They inform parents of news and events, and provide general reminders about various matters.
We post pictures of school events regularly on Facebook so please feel free to 'like' and follow. Please note the FB page is public. It is meant as a forum to celebrate the school so if you have any concerns please approach school directly to ensure an effective and efficient response.
Class assemblies occur once a year to enable you to come into school and watch your child/children share their learning.
Once a year parents are invited to join their children for a school lunch and we offer opportunities to ‘stay and play.’
