Home-School Links

We like to maintain as much contact with parents as possible and involve them in school life whenever we can.  We give each child a Home/School book which can be used as a means of communication as well as for recording reading progress.  Please make sure that you check this book daily for Teacher's comments/requests and initial the book so we know you have seen it.  Please also use it to make any comments or pass on any relevant information.

Each child receives a school book bag and a water bottle when they start school and we ask that these are looked after carefully - replacements cost £3.00 and £1.00 respectively.  Children bring their book bags home daily with their reading books, homework, correspondence and the Reading Record book.

We send a newsletter at the end of each week by e-mail (or paper by request a) to keep you fully informed about what's happening at school.  Further letters are sent, dealing with specific events when needed.  The newsletter and all events are also posted here, on the website.

We will notify you of a school trip for which we require parental consent, although we send home a general permission slip at the beginning of each school year covering local visits.

There are times when we may need to contact you individually, perhaps in an emergency situation, so please let us know if you change address, get a new phone number, etc, so that we can keep our records up-to-date.  We also send home a data sheet at the start of each academic year for you to check and amend as necessary.
