Reporting to Parents
There are several formal points of contact for parents and teachers throughout the year. However, worries should never be allowed to fester. Please contact the class teacher if you have a genuine concern you wish to discuss. There may also be times when we will need to talk through an issue with you.
During the Autumn term parents are invited to meet with the class teacher to discuss their child’s progress and development. and during the Spring term parents are invited to a Parents Trail around the school.
From September 2000 children have been assessed at ‘Baseline’ on entering school at the age of 4+. using the Pips (Performance in Primary Schools) Assessment Scheme. Also the Foundation Stage Profile is completed for all children in their reception year.
Comprehensive written reports are sent to parents during the Summer Term. These will reflect individual achievement/attainments over the past year, and set future targets.
At the end of the Summer Term the school holds an Open Evening for all parents and children. Should there be any issues arising from the written reports these may be discussed during the Open Evening on an individual appointment basis.
Year 2 children take part in the Department of Education’s Standard Assessment Tasks (SATS) prior to leaving the infant school. Their overall levels will be recorded on the report.
Class teachers hold regular “surgeries” with parents to discuss
any worries regarding their child’s progress during the year.
Termly reviews are held to share the Individual Education or Behaviour Plans that are established for some pupils with their parents/carers.
If you have any worries/queries however, we hope that you will
come and talk to us. Please do not feel you have to wait until the formal interviews as Mrs Blundell will be pleased to see you at any time. If possible, please telephone before you arrive in case she is unavailable. Discussions with class teachers should take place after school if possible as the time before school is a very busy one for teachers!
