Parent Consultations

As part of our ongoing monitoring of standards we often hold discussions with the children to talk about their views on their learning and progress. This year we would like to send home the children’s writing and mathematics books to share with you.

We know how important it is for school staff to work in partnership with parents and families and feel this would be a very good way for parents to see how much progress their children are making.  We ask that you do not write in the books yourselves, or with the children, as these books are a record of the children’s work at school.

Writing and Mathematics books will be sent home with your child on Friday 17th March 2017.  Please ensure your child’s books are returned with them, on Monday 20th March 2016, at the start of the day.

Attached below is a short guide which outlines what we mean by ‘progress’ and some of the things you can talk to your child about when you are sharing their books with them.  There is also a feedback sheet below which we would like you to complete and return. Paper copies will be provided to parents on Friday 17th March when the books are sent home.

We have timed these pupil discussions to coincide with parent consultation evening (Tuesday 21st October 201) so that you have seen your child’s progress in books prior to meeting with the class teacher.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Visvanathan or Mr Henry.
