Consultation Meetings, Workshops and Views
Parent Consultation Evenings: Staff are very much looking forward to meeting parents this week and have a lot to report on how children have settled into their new classes. In order to fit everyone in, slots are limited to 5-10 minutes – if it is felt that more time is needed, a follow-up meeting can be arranged but we do need to stick to timings in order to keep everyone happy!
Parent Views: During both evenings, there will be questionnaires for you to complete whilst you are waiting for your appointment. There will be a box in which to put the completed forms in each corridor. Please take the time to complete the form as your feedback is important to us. Thank you.
Parent Workshops: We began the workshops very successfully last year with many parents attending and giving excellent feedback. One of the key points raised by many parents was that it would have been more useful to have them earlier in the school year, so we have taken that suggestion on board. The purpose is to share tips and tricks to give you ideas for how to support your children at home. Each year group has a slightly different focus which relates directly to the needs of that year group e.g. Year 1 focuses on Phonics, Year 2 and Year 6 focus on SATS, etc. The teachers will share with you the end of year expectations in reading, writing and maths. We provide you with examples of the style of comprehension questions, the spellings related to their year group as well as sharing examples of ‘how to…’ maths strategies. Each workshop had a really practical focus with plenty of audience participation to give you a sense of the higher expectations of the curriculum.
