As parents ourselves we like parents to take an active role in their child’s education. The level of involvement is open to each individual parent. Parental involvement, however small, is always welcome!
We have an annual Parents Meeting where we all meet to discuss any issues affecting the school and to debate any changes. The Parents Meeting works specifically as an advisory body and as a coordinator for any fund raising. The meeting also provides parents with an opportunity to socialise and become part of the school community.
Once a year we also have a Parents Evening where parents can meet all their child’s teachers to discuss their progress in each subject. However as a small school it is very important to us that we maintain regular communication with parents, whether at the beginning or end of the school day, by email or by phone.
With prior arrangement, parents are always welcome to stay at our school, if they want to help settle in their child or are just curious to see what we all get up to. We always ensure that parents are kept well informed about their child’s progress. This is done throughout the school year. Likewise we expect parents to also keep us informed about their child, particularly if the child is also being home educated.
