So that each child reaches his or her full potential, it is essential that school and home work together. It is for this reason that we welcome parents to write, telephone us or make an appointment to see us so that we are aware of any problems which the child may be experiencing.
Homework is an important way for children to collaborate with adults at home in order to develop their learning. It also enables parents to gain a deeper understanding of what their child can do and where they need support. Expectations and homework tasks will be shared by individual class teachers.
Absence from School
An early notification of a child’s absence is greatly appreciated, and we request that parents let the office know of any absence and the reasons by 9.30 am, either by telephone, email or letter. Our attendance record is exemplary and all absences, unless absolutely necessary, are discouraged, as children should feel that attending school has first priority.
Attendance rates are formally recorded in school, regularly reported to the Governing Board, and submitted to the local authority and Department for Education. Where persistent and unauthorised absence becomes a concern, parents will be formally contacted by letter and a referral may be made.
All relevant policies and procedure can be found on this website. These are regularly reviewed by the Head of School and Governing Board.
