Parental Engagement

We operate a welcoming ‘open door’ policy, positively encouraging the co-operation and close involvement of parents. We want to learn more about your children from you, and to discuss ways in which you can help and encourage your child in all aspects of education

Before enrolment, parents are invited to bring their children to visit to meet the staff and familiarise themselves with the school. Children are invited to spend several sessions with us during the half term prior to officially starting school

A weekly newsletter provides current information and news. The newsletters are sent out each Friday by email and are also available on the school website

Many parents work voluntarily in the school on a regular basis and/or respond generously to specific requests for help if they cannot make a regular commitment. Any help with activities such as reading, cooking, art and craft work, maths games and preparing resources is very much appreciated

If you would like to become involved in any way, we would be delighted! Please talk to your child’s class teacher and we will arrange for a DBS check to be put in place. We also welcome any parents who want to come and spend some time in school to find out what goes on!

Parents’ Evenings

Formal parents’ evening to discuss your child’s progress and targets are held each term. In the Spring term, your child will receive an Annual Report which is sent out prior to the spring term parents’ evening and which gives an overview of progress and next steps in all the curriculum areas

In addition to this, you are welcome to meet informally with your child’s class teacher or the headteacher, either at the beginning or end of the school day, or by a prior arrangement on almost any day

We aim to hold regular curriculum workshops to keep parents informed about educational development and to give ideas for how to help children at home

Eardisley CE Primary School we view education as a partnership with parents and the wider community and we celebrate the fact that education is a two-way process between home and school. In this way, we all work together to enhance school life and maintain an environment of enjoyment and achievement. We are delighted to have a core of parent volunteer class helpers who support children’s learning on a regular basis
