Reporting to parents

Weekly newsletters are sent home each Wednesday by email. They are also available on this website.  Each term there is a syndicate newsletter updating parents on the forthcoming events and areas of study.

Parents Evenings/Reporting to Parents

Teachers hold individual parent interviews for all parents twice throughout the year.  Written reports are issued twice a year. These will give a written indication of your child's attitude, effort and progress against the National Standards and is a summation of the year's work.

Incidental Pupil/Parent Interviews

Parents are welcome to discuss concerns with teachers as they arise, by appointment. However, as teachers have commitments before, during and after school, parents are requested to make an appointment by contacting the office.

Teachers are unavailable during school time when they are teaching.

Absences

Parents should notify the school office by telephone or note (delivered by sibling, neighbour or friend) when a pupil is going to be absent.  All pupil absences, by law, must be reported and explained even if the absence is only for part of the day.  We also request that all children who have been kept home for illness are not returned too early.  This helps lower the risk of infecting others and ensures your child is well and truly recovered so they can concentrate on their lessons.

Absence phone line: 4180082  (24 hr answer phone) or our on-line "Report Absence" link from the home-page.
