EYFS Parent Partnership Policy

EYFS Parent Partnership Policy

Here at St George’s RC Primary School we values the unique insight that parents can provide into their children’s learning and acknowledge that learning begins and continues in the home environment. By working in close partnership with parents, we seek to nurture in the children the development of trust, respect, confidence, independence, resilience and the desire to learn.

Aims:

  • To communicate fully with parents to ensure that we all (parents, children, staff) have the same purpose in mind – the needs, development and progress of the children.
  • To involve parents fully in school life and the school community. • To operate an Open Door Policy that encourages the fullest possible two-way communication between staff and parents.
  • To work in close co-operation with parents in order to ensure high standards of care and academic achievement for all of our children.
  • To provide an environment inclusive for all parents and their children, regardless of need, background or culture. Parents are welcomed into the school at mutually convenient times to learn more about their children’s progress and to celebrate their successes. There are numerous opportunities throughout the year (both formal and informal) to meet together and get to know each other. Meetings are arranged at a variety of different times to enable as many parents as possible to attend.

Formal

  • Induction events for new parents and children include joint parent/child play sessions and home visits.
  • Tours of the school for all new and existing parents to see the school at work and get to know the geography of the building.
  • Welcome booklet sent out to settings or families to provide parents with information for the coming year
  • Parent Consultation meetings in during the Autumn and Spring term, to provide parents with up-to-date information on their children’s progress and set targets.
  • Meetings to discuss, evaluate and update Individual Education Plans for children with special educational needs when needed.
  • Annual Progress Reports in July.
  • Phonics meeting for the Reception aged children.

Parental Feedback

The school will regularly seek parental views on a range of topics affecting pupils' education through questionnaires and verbal discussion. Feedback is valued, and responses are seriously considered and appropriate action taken. We are committed to the highest possible level of Partnership and are always open to new suggestions on how we can improve.
