The relationship between parents and the school is key
Parent and carer partnerships work to:
- Support families to enable pupils to enjoy and achieve
- Enable families to make informed choices about their children's education and well being
- Encourage families positive involvement in school life.
The health, safety and well-being of each child is a priority. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. On rare occasions, our concerns about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you. The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Buckinghamshire Area Child Protection Committee, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this to ensure the safety of all. If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to the Headteacher.
Communication between home and school is key. Parents are kept informed in a variety of ways. We use Parent Mail, newsletters, the school notice board and the website to communicate on a regular basis.
In addition, the school office is open between 8:30 am and 4:15 pm for any day to day queries.
We hold parent consultation evenings to discuss children’s progress as well as ‘Meet the Teacher’ and curriculum evenings to provide parents with information about classroom routines and ways in which parents can further support learning. At the end of each academic year, an Open Evening is held to celebrate the pupils' hard work and a report recording their progress and attainment is sent to parents. Parents are encouraged to make school aware of issues that may arise and staff are available to discuss any concerns.
School policies, minutes of meetings, OFSTED reports and similar documents are available in the school office and on the school website. Parents wishing to view their child’s profile may do so by prior arrangement with the Headteacher.
The school enjoys and benefits from its links within the village and the wider community. We work closely with other local schools and have enjoyed visits from the WI for Pancake Day and local residents during our history enrichment days.
We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for staff, pupils and all those receiving services from the school, irrespective of gender, disability or race. The achievement of all pupils is monitored to ensure inclusive teaching and we aim to provide all our pupils with a firm foundation so that they fulfill their potential. We seek to eliminate any unlawful discrimination against pupils and staff by adhering to our duties as an employer. We believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.
Pupil's property, whilst on school premises, is not insured against loss. Every effort is made to keep pupils’ property safe. Expensive items, such a musical instruments, bicycles, etc. should be insured on the all-risks section of your home contents policy as the school cannot accept liability for any such losses.
In order for pupils to reach their full potential we provide an enriched curriculum of activities in addition to the National Curriculum. We do not charge for any activity undertaken as part of the National Curriculum, but some aspects of the extra activities may be chargable. Information about voluntary contributions is explained in the Charging policy found on the policies page.
