Our school ethos is ‘Learning together, Supporting Each other’. We believe that this includes children, staff, parents and the community. We have a very supportive village community with strong links with local businesses, and we strive to involve the community and parents as often as we can in the children’s learning.
We send a frequent newsletter to parents to keep them informed about school events. We invite you to celebrate children’s work and talents at various times in the school year for example class assemblies, Christmas and end of school productions and celebration of work.
As parents are a key factor in their children’s learning they have a vital role in learning at home. Our staff conduct subject workshops to demonstrate the way that we teach different aspects. For example, phonics workshops to develop an understanding of the way we teach reading or a calculation evening to explain methods we use in Mathematics.
We conduct open afternoons where parents and members of the community are welcomed into school to celebrate the children’s learning, accompanied by tea and cakes! The children present their learning to the adults through dance, song, ICT presentations and drama.
We always welcome parent helpers and volunteers to support with many aspects of learning. We are very lucky to have helpful members of the community who enjoy visiting school and listening to children read or tell a few historical stories! Parents help with the scenery, face painting, sporting events and even gardening. The more skills and expertise the better!
We are constantly striving to improve our school for the benefit of the children. We ask for parents feedback after many events and send an annual questionnaires for identifying our strengths and areas for improvement.
