Working in partnership
The success of Cleaswell Hill School relies upon a partnership approach to the education of your child.
Making you feel welcome
Keeping in touch through diaries, phone calls, emails, letters, Tapestry in Early Years, sharing Learning Journals, newsletters, blogs and Facebook
Offering parent/carer evenings, class, phase and whole school coffee mornings, appointments and home visits
Using the school website to signpost information, advice and support and to keep you up to date with school life
Using the plasma screen in the reception area and also assemblies to celebrate the achievements of your child
Keeping you informed of your child’s progress through reports and photographs
A Parent/Carer Partnership group meet half-termly in school. Areas for discussion are decided by parents, and visiting speakers are arranged on their behalf by school. The focus is one of informality with refreshments available. Information on meeting dates is available as a letter home, from the school office or on the school website.
Parents and carers are welcome to make an appointment to meet with members of staff to discuss their child and the curriculum on offer to them. Parents/carers meet with the class teacher and other involved professionals at the EHCP Review meeting annually. These meetings discuss the child’s progress towards their long term EHCP targets and agree new short term PLIM targets to maintain progression over the next year. Any Health Care Plans including intimate care, Relationships and Sex Education, Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy needs can also be discussed.
A Parent/carers evening will be held annually in addition to many other opportunities to visit school, for eg. Christmas Performance, Summer Fair, Sports Day, assemblies, Phase Open Days and Coffee Mornings.
Following a Facebook poll, we have re-written our school Home Learning Policy to reflect parent/carer views.
