Communication

See Also: Parent Involvement

 

Appointments with Teachers

Parents are encouraged to maintain contact with class teachers for the purpose of discussing their children’s progress. Teachers should be given sufficient time to prepare for interviews in order to make them as productive as possible and so that supervision arrangements can be made for the remainder of their class where this is required. Consideration should be given to minimising disruption to core teaching time by seeking appointments outside class times. Appointments with the teaching staff may be obtained either directly with the teacher or by contacting the school office.

 

School Records

Please ensure you keep the school up to date of any change of details.  The information below is most important:

  • Change of address (residential, postal or email)
  • Change of telephone contact numbers
  • Change of emergency contacts
  • Change of family doctor or dentist
  • Serious health conditions
  • Change of family situation (eg separation)
  • Reports from Specialists (eg paediatrician)

 

Information Evenings

A Parent Information meeting is held during the first few weeks of 1st term to inform parents of expectations, homework, work to be covered, ways they can support / assist during the week and other relevant information.

 

Weekly Class Notes

The classroom teachers are responsible for sending home weekly class notes.  The purpose of these notes is to inform parents about what is happening in the classroom for that week. Class notes are sent home via Skoolbag. Several teachers will also communicate with parents via Class Dojo.
