We work in partnership with the parents/carers of our students. We find that for the best outcomes we ask for the following from parents/carers:

  • see that your child comes to school regularly, on time, properly equipped and wearing school uniform.
  • contact the school on the first morning of absence and confirm reasons in writing.
  • make the school aware of any concerns or problems that might affect my child’s work or behaviour.
  • support the school policies and adhere to the Code of Conduct (as detailed in the Student Planner).
  • support your child with homework and providing other opportunities for home learning.
  • show an interest in your child’s life at school particularly by attending parents’ evenings and discussions about your child’s progress.

In return we undertake to:

  • ensure that your child achieves his/her full potential as a valued member of the school community
  • provide a balanced curriculum and meet the individual needs of your child.
  • achieve high standards of work and behaviour through building good relationships, regularly monitoring work standards and developing a sense of responsibility.
  • keep you informed about general school matters and about your child’s progress in particular be open and welcoming at all times and offer opportunities for you to become involved in the daily life of the school.
  • set realistic academic targets for achievement and encourage the child to reach them.
  • contact parents if there is a problem with attendance, punctuality or equipment and address effectively, concerns raised by parents.
  • set, mark and monitor homework and provide facilities for children to do homework in school.
  • arrange Parents’ Evenings during which progress will be discussed.

Parents Evening

Homework

Parents are asked to help by:

  • Making it clear that you support the school in helping learning through homework.
  • Providing a suitable, reasonably quiet place where homework can be done. If this is not possible in the home you can help your son or daughter to attend other places where homework can be done e.g. the homework club or breakfast club at school, the school library or public library.
  • Checking the  ‘Show My Homework’ website to monitor the homework set for your child and the dates when it should be handed in.
  • Encouraging your child to organise their time so that homework is completed well before the deadline, preferably on the evening it is set.

Progress – Reporting to Parents

Pupil progress is monitored in all subjects. Progress is reported to parents in three different ways: an End of Key Stage Report, three termly Progress Reports and a Parents’ Consultation Evening.
