Children’s learning and development is assessed by our Nursery teachers in the statutory 2 year Progress Check on entry to the Nursery School and this information is shared with parents at Parents' Evening in the child's first term.
Parent Evenings are held every term throughout the School and a written report is sent to parents in July, including a statement on the child's attainment in the Early Learning Goals for children at the end of Reception.
In addition there are individual 7+ meetings for parents in Key Stage One.
At the Nursery we hold a curriculum talk about the early years foundation stage during our termly Welcome Drinks for new parents and there is an open morning each term for parents to come in and share their child's Special Book and class displays.
At the Upper School there is a Parent Curriculum meeting for each year group at the start of the School year and we hold an open classroom morning each term.
At the start of each term parents receive a welcome letter from the Headteacher and from their child's teacher and a list of forthcoming important diary dates. We keep in touch regularly with parents by email with arrangements and reminders about School trips and events. At the end of each term parents receive a newsletter.
We have an open door policy and urge parents to contact the Headteachers at each School by telephone, appointment or by popping into the School office, if they have a concern about their child or a School matter they would like to discuss.
