Communication between staff, with parents, governors, local authority, support agencies etc is of paramount importance for the school if we are to do all we can to get the best for our pupils and out of our pupils. Everyone’s contribution is valued and the policy of the school is to operate an ‘open communication, open door‘ policy as much as possible.
Pupil Progress and Parents
We follow a policy of continuous assessment for all children monitoring their progress, diagnosing difficulties and developing their successes. Parents and carers are formally invited into school during the Autumn and Spring terms for Consultation Evenings.
A Mid-Year Pupil Progress Report is sent home in mid-February and before the end of the Summer term a full Written Report is sent home about each pupil. This includes National Curriculum assessment results for those pupils in Year Two and Year Six.
Pupil Progress and Pupils
Personal targets are developed for all pupils, shared with them and monitored closely by teachers and leadership. Pupils themselves take part in a mid-year self-assessment, which further informs the staff, school and parents re. the pupils.
Staff communicate via email, phone and meet regularly including:
- Monday staff meeting
- Early morning briefings two or three times a week
- Key Stage meetings
