Parent Teacher Association
We have a very active and supportive Parent Teacher Association who work alongside staff for the enrichment of our children’s education. Joining the PTA is a good way to make new friends and to help support the school. As well as raising a huge sum of money the PTA events are friendly and fun. Recent successes have included a Barn Dance, Duck Race, Quiz Night, Camp-out, Hallowe’en Party, Christmas Fair, 100 Club and disco.
We have many parents who help in school with a variety of activities. Some parents are able to offer assistance with outings and visits, some help with organising books and our library, some are able to help within the classroom or with reading, swimming or sports events or by maintaining our wildlife areas. If you are able to help in any way please speak to your child’s teacher who will appreciate your offer.
We organise regular Parents’ Evenings when parents meet with the teacher to discuss the progress of their child and view the work that has been done in school. We hope these evenings are beneficial to both parents and teachers to sharing in the development of each child. However, teachers are always available to discuss any matter which concerns your child’s education. You may also like to speak with the Head teacher informally, before or after school, or by appointment through the Secretary.
We have arranged several information evenings when we invite parents to join us for discussions on a range of topics such as, Standard Assessment Tests, The National Numeracy Strategy and reading developments. If you have any ideas for future topics please let us know.
We provide an end of year report in July to summarise your child’s efforts and progress durng the year. We also provide information on the Standard Assessment Tests for parents of children in Year Two and Year Six.
We provide regular newsletters to keep you up to date with events and activities in school. The PTA also provide information on their activities. Most communications are sent home by ‘pupil post’ usually with the younger child in the case of family letters. A quick check in school bags is often helpful in case of forgotten mail!
Topic Information Sheets
We provide information each term on the topics your child will be studying in the main subject areas. We hope these will help you support your child in their studies. Some methods of teaching have changed over the years and teachers will be happy to explain any areas that may be unfamiliar.
