Parents

The school believes that working in partnership with parents is vital for pupils to progress and to enhance their well-being.  We will communicate with parents regularly in the following ways:

 

Reporting and Feedback

Each term during the school year you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher to talk about his or her progress. These meetings are also a chance for you to ask questions, and tell your child’s teacher about his or her life outside school.

 

You can bring your child with you to these meetings. Teachers encourage the children to come along and join in the discussion about their progress at school. At the end of the school year you will be sent a written report that gives details about your child’s progress. You can always see your child’s teacher if you have any concerns about their life at school. It can be difficult for teachers to make time at the beginning and end of the day as they need to ensure pupil safety without distraction from individual parents. Please phone the school to make an appointment or you can also make an appointment to see the Head Teacher if you prefer.

 

School Reports

You will receive an annual written report on your child’s attainment and progress for the academic year they have just completed/about to complete. You will have the opportunity to discuss the report with the class teacher at the parents’ evening held in July. There are also parent/teacher consultations held in October and February.

 

Children’s Progress

Through a series of workshops and assemblies, parents and carers will have the opportunity to see how their child is doing at school.

 

Workshops

We will hold parent workshops regularly Parents/carers are invited to come to Nishkam Primary and spend an afternoon working with their child. This is a special time where we want to give parents the opportunity to focus completely on their child, enjoying creative activities and helping them to learn the basic literacy and numeracy. If parents are unable to attend, we would be delighted to welcome grandparents.

 

Class Assemblies

These will be held regularly and you will be invited through the school newsletter. These occasions will present an excellent insight into the work of the school and there will also be special events and faith based assemblies which we hope you will be able to attend. Nishkam Primary School want to ensure the privacy and protection of its pupils and so videos and other recording devices are not permitted at school events. We feel that young children can be easily distracted when performing for parents.

 

The Curriculum

Each term teachers will send the parent/carer details of the curriculum programme for each year group. This also includes details of homework and how you can support your child.

 

School Newsletters

You will receive our regular school newsletters, which will inform you of useful dates, and curriculum developments. Regularly news will be added to our website as well as useful links for parents to gain a better understanding of their child’
