My child has someone to talk to at school if they are upset

95

 

All children complete a network hand each half term so they have at least 5 people they can talk to if upset (usually 3 in school and 2 at home)

This is in addition to the class teacher and other adults, including Pastoral support

My child can take part in extra clubs and activities

95

 

Sorry – we know that some clubs fill up quickly.  We try to run as many as we possibly can and constantly look to expand the offer.  It is only physical space and time that stops us!

School lets me know how my child is doing

94%

 

We have a parents’ evening in the autumn and spring terms.  We send a short, written report in the spring and a longer report in the summer.

Tapestry, reading records, spelling results etc. and class email addresses can all be used to relay information

Please see the Pastoral Support section of the school website and let us know if you need more information.  The toolkits we have developed (see left hand side) are really helpful. Over the coming weeks, I will tell you more about what we do for all children as part of our normal classroom and school practice:
