At Studfall Academy we firmly believe that children will make the most progress when home and school work together. We are pleased to welcome all parents into the academy. You will understand that during academy hours the teachers are busy with the children, but they will always be happy to talk with you before the start or at the end of the academy day.
There are many opportunities for parents and carers to become involved in the life of the academy and to gain a greater understanding of its work. Parent’s support and expertise can be used in many ways and is greatly valued. DBS checks and safety checks are carried out on all adults working in the academy, including regular volunteers.
COMMUNICATION WITH PARENTS
We communicate with parents an carers in various ways, for example through our newsletters, questionnaires, social events, parent workshops e.g. how to help your child read, stay and play, family activities within the curriculum e.g. Science week and Book week.
There are a number of opportunities during the school year for you to visit the academy to talk about your child :
Autumn Term :
Just before the first break in October we have parent consultations throughout the school, when you will hear how your child has settled into the new academy year.
There will be a second Parent consultation in February for Literacy and Maths
Summer Term :
At the beginning of July you will receive a written report which will tell you how your child is progressing in each area of the curriculum. If your child is in Year 6, this report will also give you information on the end of Key Stage 2 statutory assessments in the core curriculum areas.
The summer term we also hold an Open Afternoon/Evening for Parents, Staff and Governors, This offers a chance to look around the academy, and to meet with staff and governors to discuss issues.
