Parent teacher communication
Parent Teacher Communication

  • Clear and consistent communication helps support children in the classroom.

  • Absences – notes are required for all absences.

  • Late arrivals – can disrupt routine.

  • Various strategies used in classrooms to reinforce behaviour both positive and negative.

Encouraging independence
Encouraging Independence

  • To encourage independence and self esteem in your child, we would appreciate you saying “goodbye” at the gate and allowing your child to make their way to their class to put away their bag and then to sit down under the COLA and wait for the teacher on duty before playing.

  • There is a teacher on duty from 8.45am every morning. Try not to arrive before this time.

  • In the afternoon, try to arrange a meeting place at the school gate.


  • Diaries are issued to all students.

  • Used as a communication tool.

  • MUST come to school each day.

  • May not be written in each day.

  • Will be used for priority communication.


  • A4 plastic sleeve folder.

  • Sent home on Monday and returned Friday.

  • Child’s responsibility to complete some work each night.

  • Do not stress if family commitments prevent homework being completed as we are flexible.

Home readers
Home Readers

  • Home reading diaries have not yet been printed. These will be sent home as soon as we receive them.
