At the start of every academic year, parents are invited to meet all the staff in your child’s unit, where the following academic year will be outlined and any queries answered. This is followed up by an opportunity to meet your child’s teacher individually, to find out how your child is settling into their new year group. After Christmas and Easter, we will send out pupil progress reports which will explain how your child is performing against age expectations and we may invite you in for a meeting to discuss any concerns we may have. You are also free to make an appointment with us to discuss any concerns you may have. We are often available if you wish to discuss any matters with us in a less formal manner. If you have difficulty catching your child’s teacher before or after school, please do not hesitate to contact school to make an appointment.
At the end of the school year, you will receive a written report about your child.
Children are expected to practise their multiplication tables and are tested in school every week. We also expect children to be reading as much as possible at home and to have opportunities to discuss what they have read with an adult. Formal homework is handed out every Friday, to be returned the following week. Children do have the opportunity of attending homework club if completing homework at home becomes an issue.
