At Quinton Primary School we believe in a working partnership between parents and the school, since each has responsibilities for the child’s whole development. We acknowledge that parents are the first educators of their children before they come to school and that it makes sense to continue to develop parental involvement during the child’s time in school.
We positively encourage parents to become involved in the work of the school particularly through homework. It is also our aim to inform parents of a variety of issues related to school, the curriculum and learning. Parents are welcomed into school for many occasions; opportunities to chat informally with staff are given a high priority.
There will of course be times when parents need to talk to teachers on a more formal basis, in which case appointments can be made with the teacher concerned. Parents are very welcome to talk with the Headmaster or Assistant Head. Appointments can be made through the school office. As a school we communicate regularly through:
- Monthly newsletters
- Letters about specific events
- Good/bad behaviour letters
- Parents evenings
- Half-Termly Target feedbacks
- Annual progress reports
- Informal meetings with parents as appropriate
- Governing Body newsletters and reports
The Headmaster is usually on the playground before and after school each day specifically for any parents who need to raise an issue or just for a chat.
The school subscribes to a text messaging system to be able to communicate with our parents electronically. If you have not signed up to ParentMail, please see Mrs Maxwell in the school office. Any changes in dates or cancellation of clubs will be communicated throught ParentMail.
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about our school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.
