Home School Partnership

Attendance

We want children to look forward to their day in school and good attendance is vital to your child's happiness and progress. Punctuality is also expected, as lateness disrupts the learning of others in our community. If a child is persistently late or absent, the parents will be asked to come into school and speak to the Family Support Worker.

If your child is absent through illness, please telephone the school promptly or send an email on the first day of absence so we know your child is safe. This is particularly important if your child walks to and from school. We are obliged to keep official records of all absences and you are expected to provide a note confirming the reason for absence.

If you take your child out of school for any reason, you will need authorisation from the Headteacher. In line with the local authority guidance, We strongly recommend that you do not book holidays during term time as this is extremely disruptive to your child's education. School term dates are sent out a the beginning of each school year and are also available from the school office.

Parents Meetings

At the beginning of each new academic year, you are invited to meet your child's class teacher and to find out about the curriculum planned for the year group. Parent Evenings are held each term, usually November, March and July and this is an opportunity for you to discuss your child's progress. However, we have an open school policy and you are always welcome to come into school to discuss your child. Please telephone in advance to make an after school appointment.

You will receive targets for your child every term and a written report on your child's progress annually.

Home School Agreement

The school has a Home-School Agreement which you will be invited to sign when you child begins school and every subsequent year. This outlines the expectations and responsibilities for pupils, parents and the school.
