We value the benefit of a strong partnership between school and parents and carers and work hard to ensure communication between school and home is effective.
We believe parents and teachers achieve better outcomes for our children when working together. To support this work we encourage regular contact and consultations so that a full exchange of information is possible. We value the role our parents have in contributing to school improvement through completion of questionnaires, regular review of our values and aims, evaluation of activities and general feedback.
We publish our weekly newsletter on a Friday and web links to these are sent by text each week. In addition, we communicate by our texting service as well as our Primrose Hill twitter feed. We send regular letters and booklets to explain what is happening and make clear our work in the school.
The Friends of Primrose Hill, our parent-teacher association, play a vital role in the life of the school. They bring us all together and raise funds through social events, allowing parents, children and friends an opportunity to enjoy themselves whilst helping the school.
Staff are available in the playground before and after school and members of the Senior Leadership Team will greet parents and carers on the gate at the start and end of each day. Please do come and speak to us, whether just say hello or to let us know how things are going.
Reporting to Parents and Carers
Parent/teacher meetings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms where appointments are made for private consultations. At these meetings parents and carers have an opportunity to look at their children’s books. In the Summer Term an annual written report is given to parents with comments and judgements based upon continuous teacher assessment throughout the year, and parents are invited in to school to discuss this with the teacher.
