How we communicate progress and provide support in how to help your child.
At the beginning of the year , within the first week, we hold a parent and child meeting for each class. At this meeting the class teacher sets out exactly what you are to expect within the year your child is in their class. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and build a relationship with your child's class teacher.
We also share with you the programme of study for english and maths for your child's year group. These are the skills that they are expected to achieve by the end of the academic year.
During the first half term we hold an assessment workshop for parents to explain our assessment approach in school and give the opportunity for any questions to be asked.
During October , we invite parents to have a one to one meeting with their child's teacher. During this meeting, the teacher will be able to explain how well your child has settled into school. At this point the class teacher will also share progress against the programme of study for english and maths and any individual targets that they are working on.
At the beginning of the Spring term , an updated version of the programme of study for english and maths is sent home to update you as to how your child is developing mid-point in the academic year.
In the last week of Spring 1 there will be a parents evening whereby you can look through all of your child's books , art work etc and to have an in depth conversation with your child's class teacher about progress and attainment . The class teacher will also share ideas of how you can support your child at home and what your child needs to focus upon in order to progress through the remainder of the year.
In June , you will receive a full report that summarises the achievements that your child has made and the skills that they have acquired during the academic year. The report will also include what your child needs to concentrate upon in order to make further progress. (See the assessment overview document for how attainment/progress is recorded).
Finally , after you have read your child's report , we hold a final parents evening so that you can discuss the content of the report.
Our staff are always accessible at the end of the school day. If there is anything that you are unsure of then please make an appointment to see your child's class teacher. We aim to work with parents as a team - that is what benefits the children most.
