Working with Parents

Our Early Years Foundation Stage unit is well staffed and we pride ourselves on building strong relationships with parents and carers. We welcome parents into the classrooms and enjoy sharing our learning whenever possible.  We use an online tool ‘Tapestry’ as our learning journals.  We hope that this programme will ensure that all parents are able to share and celebrate the achievements and progress of the children.  Parents are also invited to join our EYFS classes each week for share books with their children


We are committed to working in partnership with parents we demonstrate this through:-

  •          Providing individual support for you and your child through the Key Person system
  •          Providing high quality play and learning experiences which we will share with you
  •          Involving you in the life of the school


Please show your commitment to working in partnership by:-

  •          Arriving and collecting your child on time.
  •          Supporting your child by contributing to the school’s guidelines and activities. 
  •          Sharing your child’s interest at home with the key person and completing homework and reading with your child.
  •          Keeping your Key Person informed of any changes to your child’s circumstances or any worries you may have of your child’s behaviour or development.
  •          Attending our “Parents Reading” sessions with your child.
  •          Taking a story book home each week to share with your child.


 We encourage parents to use Ofsted’s parent view.

Oral Health 

Five Important Key Oral Health Messages:

  1. At home brush children's teeth for at least 2 minutes twice a day, brush last thing at night and on one other occasion with a slither or pea size amount of fluoride toothpaste according to the child's age. Allow  them to spit out any excess and  don't rinse with water. This activity should be supervised by an adult. 
  2. Children to attend the dentist for regular check ups. 
  3. To use and encourage the use of an open cup by the age of 12 months 
  4. To drink milk and water and cut out sugary drinks altogether. 
  5. To reduce the frequency of sugar. The frequency of sugar attacks should be reduced to 3 meals and 1 snack per day and sugar should be completely avoided 1 hour before bed.
