Home and School Commitment
We want to build a partnership with parents that lasts from when children arrive in Reception to when they leave at 18.
We value the views, expertise and support of parents. Success at School 21 will come from how well we work with the children, parents and the community.
Reception Home Visits
At School 21, we want to make the transition to our school as smooth as possible for your child. Therefore we feel that it is crucial that you and your child are given the opportunity to get to know your class teacher before starting at reception.
The home visits will give the teacher time to talk about procedures and answer any queries that you may have. Also to give you the opportunity to share information that you feel is important about your child.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday. Some homework projects will last longer than one week.
Most homework will link closely to the projects your child will be learning about that term.
One of the keys to the success of School 21 is the strong working relationship between parents, teachers and children. The key to this is constant communication. It is for this reason that we have an open door policy and recognise the need for regular communication between home and school.
All of our families are welcome to visit the school in addition to any telephone conversations that you may have with members of staff.
Our staff have regular parents’ evenings involving parents, children and teachers.
Below are a few ways in which you can get further involved in the school:
Chaperone and participate in our community service activities
Attend parent workshops
Join in with our winter fairs, concerts and other annual events
Attend parent coffee mornings
Chaperone school trips
Attend parent meetings
Become a parent governor
Please feel free to suggest any other ideas that you might have.
