There are plenty of opportunities to talk to staff, 'meet the teacher' sessions, parents evenings and many others. The teachers will contact you if there are any issues or concerns. A Parents' Evening is held in late October to early November to discuss how children are progressing socially and academically. Another Parents' Evening is held in the spring term. Annual reports are issued toward the end of the summer term. Parents will be given the opportunity to discuss this report.

How should my child search for lost property?

Please make sure that anything belonging to your child is labelled with his/her name. We have a lost property cupboard in the foyer area. If it is not in the cupboard, it will probably be somewhere within the classroom. Please ask your child's class teacher.
