Parental Involvement

To be taken directly to the Ofsted/Willesborough Parent View website, please click here -  "go to Parent View".

We always welcome ideas and feedback from parents. The feedback we received from our new Reception parent workshops has been most useful.  Please come in or get in touch at any time if you have an idea, a question or something you would like to discuss. Our Office staff will point you in the direction of the best person to speak to.

Fran, Headteacher, Kitty and Shelly, Assistant Headteachers and Emma, Parent Support Advisor are always available on the playground at the start of the school day. Class teachers and Teaching Assistants enjoy daily face to face contact with parents too.

Please don't hesitate to ask a question or talk to us. If you are a working parent we can always talk to you over the phone or arrange to meet you later in the day (at a time that will suit you, we don't finish at 3pm).

If the matter you would like to discuss is concerning your child, it is always best to speak to your child's class teacher. She of course knows your child best and is most equipped to help.


Opportunities to come into school

We want to work with you as parents and carers to ensure that you have as many opportunities as possible to engage with school and work with us to support your child in their learning.  In addition to a great range of parenting courses and workshops there are many opportunities for you to visit us.
Parent consultations are held three times a year.  This is a formal opportunity for you to meet with your child's class teacher and discuss the progress your child has made.  An integral part of this discussion is your child's next steps for learning and how you can support them in achieving these.
The Big Breakfast takes place on the first Thursday of every term.  You are invited to come into school at 8.20 am and enjoy eating breakfast with your child in the school hall.  After breakfast you can come into class with your child and share a short learning session with them.
Walk in Wednesday takes place on the last Wednesday of every term.  You are invited to come into school with your child at the end of the day to tour the school, view their learning environment, view the work your child has covered and informally chat to the teachers.
Birthday celebration assemblies take place on the last Friday of every month.  In the month of your child's birthday you are invited to come into school to celebrate their birthday in a short assembly in the school hall.
There are several other opportunities for you to come in and celebrate special events with your child; International Week,

Reception Careers Fair and our Great British Red Nose Day so far this year have incorporated exhibitions and activities in the school hall for parents to enjoy with their children.
Information regarding all the opportunities we offer are provided on our events leaflet and detailed on weekly newsletters.


Parent Helpers

Coming in to school to help is not just beneficial to the children, it's fun and rewarding and it gives you a good insight into what goes on.  You may be able to come in every week or you may like to come in on an occasional or 'one off' basis to help with a special event.  We hold a parent helpers meeting at the start of each year and a celebration tea party at the end.  You can join the team at anytime.  Shelly King or Kitty Healy our Assistant Headteachers, co-ordinate parent helper provision.  Get in touch with them via the school office or catch them on the playground to find out more.


Helping Heroes is also now up and running.  If you can't come in to school, perhaps you would like to take some resources home to cut for us?   Visit the office to sign up and see what resources you can help with.
