Contact with Parents
Teachers and parents can communicate via Class Dojo as per the Class Dojo policy.
We have a texting system in school, parents will be sent regular text messages with activities and reminders regarding term dates.
A termly calendar will be published on the school website at the start of each term, and a paper copy will also be sent home with children.
Parents can always make an appointment to discuss queries, concerns or their child’s progress with their class teacher or the Head Teacher. This system ensures parents and teachers become partners in promoting the child’s learning and well-being.
There are two formal parent teacher meetings organised in the Autumn and Spring Terms, followed by a written report in July.
Reports for Pupils and Parents
All pupils will receive an annual progress report in July, which will include teacher assessment and test results, where appropriate.
Helping in School
We warmly welcome parents and carers (grandparents etc) who would like to help with school activities. To meet the necessary safeguarding requirements, volunteers must undergo checks. Please contact the office for further details.
Friends of St Patrick’s
We have a very active parents’ group at St Patrick’s. The ‘Friends of St Patrick’s’ parents group is instrumental in organising events to raise funds for the school. These funds contribute to improving the education for all our children in school. All parents automatically become members of the group when their child starts school. For more information, please contact the school office.
Parent Curriculum Mornings
Before every parents evening we will hold a curriculum morning in class, this gives parents the opportunity to take a look at their child’s work and take part in a lesson in the classroom.
