Parents

We welcome all parents and carers as partners and hope that by working together we can enhance the life, opportunities and education of our pupils.
Through the year we have lots of opportunities for parents and carers to come along to the school to talk to teachers and other staff. We run workshops on curriculum topics and new initiatives so parents and carers can find out more about the kinds of learning that takes place and better support their children.
We also hold Parents' Evenings in the Autumn and Spring terms to give the opportunity to discuss progress and next steps in more depth and a Celebration Afternoon in the Summer term to review the year. Parents and carers are encouraged to come along and explore their child's work with them and to talk through any particular concerns or interests with the class teachers.
If there are ever any questions then please do get in touch with us! The beginning of the day is often not the best time for class teachers to have a chat so if you do need to talk then please do mention it to the teacher and they'll be able to find time for you after school or arrange a time that suits everyone.
All our teachers also have school email addresses and are more than happy to respond that way too.
The Sheffield Parents' Survey
Sheffield City Council have launched The Sheffield Parents' Survey and are interested in your opinions about raising a family in Sheffield.
You can fill out the survey here:
The Sheffield Parents' Survey

The Parent Engagement team at Sheffield City council say...
"We want to give as many parents as possible the opportunity to express their views about the services that affect them and their families. The survey asks important questions about the area where you live, parenting & family life, health, childcare, safety, crime & antisocial behaviour and schools. Responses will help council and partner organisations (including schools) to plan, deliver and commission appropriate services in a more effective and efficient way."
The Sheffield Parents' Survey - More than just ticking a box!

Leading Parent Partnership Award (LLPA)

Dear Parents/Carers,

Governors and staff at our school are committed to strengthening home-school links. Since 2010 we have been working towards the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) which the school was awarded earlier this year.

It is a national award that recognises the work schools are doing with parents and carers and offers a framework to support schools in their work. 

Using the LPPA criteria we are keen to improve communication between home and school and highlight the benefits of better relationships ~ such as improved pupil attendance, behaviour and increased involvement and support.

If you would like to find out more or become part of our working group, please contact Mrs.Waters.

Looking forward to your ideas!
