At Sir Thomas Abney we believe that good links between you and the school improves your child’s enjoyment and chances of doing well.
The more you know about what your child is learning, the more you can offer support. We try hard to keep you informed about how and what your child is learning and and about his/her individual progress. We do this by having regular parents’ open days, providing termly curriculum overviews and a yearly report. You are welcome to contact us if you would like to discuss your child’s progress.
Similarly, we are best able to support your child’s learning and progress if you keep us informed about anything that may affect their learning such as illness or difficulties at home.
We encourage families to learn together by offering workshops and activities that involve parents and carers working with their children at school. Learning together supports children and involves parents and carers in their child’s education and interests. Look out for information about future opportunities to work with your children at school in the newsletters.
We like to hear views and feedback from parents and carers and we are pleased that the response and results of a recent questionnaire were very positive. For the school’s most recent Parent/Carer Questionnaire please click here.
