Parents’ Role

We actively encourage a close relationship between parents and all staff. Sharing information gives us a deeper insight into the wellbeing and progress of each child, and our open-door policy means we’re readily available to discuss any concerns that arise.

Parents are encouraged to support their child’s learning, and the school provides guidance on how best this can be achieved. Parents are also regularly invited to parents’ evenings, open mornings, sports days, concerts, and theatrical productions. They can also join in their child’s class to share special events or celebrate a religious festival.

At the end of each autumn term, parents are invited to the school Christmas play or concerts. Throughout the year, there are opportunities for parents to watch various sporting events.

All parents are invited to the Sports Day held in the summer term. From time to time, other events such as concerts and art exhibitions take place at school, and parents always receive information about these well in advance to make arrangements.

We also hold a grandparents day when children are encouraged to bring their parents, grandparents, or other family members to see around the school.

At the end of the summer term, two final assemblies are held during which prizes are awarded to children in Year 6.

The Form representatives system

The is great way to meet other parents and become better informed about issues and events affecting school life and it is hoped that Form reps will welcome and help new children and families integrate into the school community.

The Form Rep role does not encompass involvement in the  academic or curriculum aspects of the school or other matters which are within the prerogative of the Head.

The key objectives of the role are:

  • To act as a social conduit for the parents and pupils of the school.
  • To help to organise social events for parents and pupils.

The form representatives normally meet the Head twice each term. For the agendas of forthcoming meetings, parents with an item of interest or activity to propose can contact either their form representative or the School Secretary. They may appoint sub-committees for special purposes (e.g., social activities such as the Autumn social, the quiz night, and the summer fair), and are keen to draw on the talents and energy of as many parents as possible in its activities.

Website and parent portal

As well as the information provided on this website, parents also have an account on the parent portal which is a secure portal for parents. To access the portal, parents have a secure login, and all parents are emailed when their child starts at the school with details on how to set up an account.

All circulars and copies of the weekly newsletter are posted on the portal. At the beginning of every term, an outline of the curriculum for each year group is also be available on the portal. Reports and assessment cards are uploaded to the parent portal.

The children have access to their own Showbie resource which is used for all teaching and learning.

Parent-Teacher meetings

In the autumn and spring terms, parents are invited to make individual five-minute appointments with their child’s form teacher.

Appointments can be booked online with instructions sent to parents when the booking period opens, usually about two weeks before the parent/teacher meetings week.

Parents are also able to make appointments with individual specialist subject teachers in the Autumn and Summer terms.


Parents receive a  short form report at the end of the Autumn term.

At the end of the summer term, all children receive a traditional, written report on their child’s progress at the end of every school year.
