Home and School in Partnership
We welcome voluntary help from parents with cooking, artwork, the libraries and reading. We also welcome parents to help us with our educational resources, school clubs and educational visits.
All parents receive termly information about what will learning will be covered in each class, and how they can help support the curriculum at home. In addition to this, each week they will receive a homework sheet which shows what has been covered in class. In the first years of school the homework is mostly reading based, with some suggestions of fun and practical activities to do with your child. As the children progress through the school, the expectation is that children will complete homework each week, appropriate for their age and stage of development, to support their learning at home and help prepare them for High School.
We have a very active Friends committee, where both parents and teachers can work closely to arrange social functions, educational evenings and fund-raising activities. They make considerable donations to the school every year for the purchase of a variety of resources.
Parents can also contribute to the life of the school by becoming part of our local governing body, a group of people who support the school and are responsible, along with our Trustees, for directing the conduct of the school and promoting high standards of education for our children.
Working in partnership allows the full potential of all our children to be reached and celebrated.
