We believe that parents are the most important people in their child’s life. We have a strong commitment to working closely with parents to maximise children’s progress.
We try to encourage the children to:
- Have a positive and independent approach to learning
- Develop their social skills in a variety of situations
- Value their surroundings, other people and their ideas
As many of the children come to school by local authority transport, contact is mainly conducted through:
- Home/school books in which staff and parents can regularly share information about their child at home and at school
- Telephone calls
- Informal visits to school
- Formal reviews of progress
We have a Pupil Parent Liaison Worker who is available to advise on a wide range of issues relating to parenting and autism. She facilitates and runs training sessions and workshops for parents who wish to gain a deeper understanding of autism.
We try to keep parents in touch with the latest events and school news through letters which are sent throughout the year. We would appreciate parents taking the time to read through the information and to respond as necessary.
We also have a parents’ notice board in our parents room which, as well as school information, gives a variety of information which may be of interest or use to parents.
We initially ask parents to see their child’s class teacher about any problem that has arisen regarding their child.
If the problem remains unresolved, parents are welcome to see the Headteacher. Should they remain dissatisfied, parents should contact the Chair of Governors. We aim to deal with all complaints swiftly and with sensitivity.
