Parent Forum News May-June


Many thanks to the parents who attended Parent Forum last month. We spoke about how the staff and the parents can work together for the benefit of the children.

The main messages on this topic from the parents were that they wanted to be better informed about what their children are learning in school and wanted more opportunities to be in school.

What were doing:

  • Knowledge organisers. This week the children will be bringing home a knowledge organiser for our anti-bullying month lessons. The idea behind the knowledge organiser is that the teachers tell parents and children what the learning will be before every topic and then the teachers spend the rest of the topic making the learning come to life.
  • Newsletters. Our newsletters come home on paper now, not just electronically. Lots of parents agree that this helps communication.
  • Volunteering. Were talking to the library service about training people to work in our library. More details to follow in July.
  • Assemblies. We want to invite parents in for year group assemblies well be putting some dates out soon for near the end of term.
  • Big Lessons. These will be kind of like the old reading cafés and maths cafés but with some exciting changes. These will be happening next term.

The staff, the children and the parents weve spoken to all seem very positive about All different. All equal. All learning as our schools slogan/strap line its really stuck with people because it seems like a vision we can all share.

Our last parent forum for the academic year 17-18 will be on Monday 9th July at 3.30pm. If youre interested in representing your childs class please email
