Partnership with Parents/Carers

 We work in partnership with parents/carers to achieve success for all our pupils.  We value our parent/carer voice and ensure we work hard to

continue this strong partnership.

We do this by:

  • A parent/carer questionnaire is sent out annually and responses contribute to the development of our school improvement plan. 
  • The introduction of our new 'Seesaw' App has been successful and will continue to be used as a valuable link with our parents/carers.  This allows access to the pupils learning throughout the school day and is used as a discussion tool in the home environment.
  • External noticeboards provide detailed information of the Governing Body, the School Offer and other information and contacts. One noticeboard displays our whole school attendance each week encouraging parents/carers to realise how low attendance can impact school life for pupils and for the school as a whole.
  • Parents / carers are asked to sign a Home/School Agreement at the start of each new school year which is kept in each pupils file.
  • All school news is updated on the school website.
  • A regular newsletter is sent to parents/carers.
  • We have introduced a 'Parent Forum - Friends of Adswood' group this year led by our PSHCE lead.
  • Parent/Carer Workshops take place every half term with a focus on the teaching of reading, writing and maths in the home. 
  • SATs and Phonics Meetings take place early in the year for our Year 1/2/6 parents.
  • Parents / carers are invited to attend two Parent’s Evening's and an Open Evening where their child’s progress can be discussed with the class team. Parents/ carers will receive an annual report of their child’s progress and attainment at the end of each school year.
  • All parents / carers and friends of the school are welcome to attend our Friday Celebration Assembly 1.15-2pm every week. Traditionally our Christmas and summer school productions and Leavers Assembly are well attended by parents / guardians. 
  • The Christmas and Summer Markets are held each year and the money raised is used for improving our school playgrounds.
  • If pupils are placed on a behaviour report, parents / carers will be invited into school to negotiate what will be involved and to sign the document.
  • Parents / guardians are requested to approach staff respectfully even at times when they feel upset or angry. Foul language, threatening or intimidating behaviour towards staff is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. Abusive, aggressive individuals will be asked to leave the school premises and will be served with a written warning that if they cannot behave with more restraint, they will not be allowed in school and may risk being reported to the police.
  • The Pastoral Team are always available on the playground at the beginning and end of day for parents/carers. 
  • Any complaints about the school should be addressed in the first instance to the headteacher. If issues remain unresolved the Chair of Governors can be contacted via the school office.
