In addition to regular term Parents Evenings, each child will receive an end of year report detailing their progress both within the National Curriculum as well as their personal development. There will be an opportunity for you to discuss the report with the class teacher.
However, close contact and involvement with the school as well as attendance at termly Parents Meetings remain an effective way for working in partnerships to fulfil each child’s potential.
We try to treat children as individuals and design the curriculum so each child can reach their full potential. We send home a termly H.A.S.T. form (Home and School Together) which details the areas to be covered in that term. The school employs classroom assistants who work under the guidance of the class teacher to help to implement individual learning programmes within the classroom. We also communicate through regular newsletters being sent home with the children.
The school also sends regular letters informing parents of forthcoming events, as well as the St John’s Newsletter and a separate R.E newsletter.
If children fail to perform as expected and their behaviour becomes unacceptable the school will negotiate a home school agreement action plan which will help monitor and improve a child’s behaviour through a positive process.
In the final year of the Infants and Juniors the children take series of Standard Attainment Tasks (SAT’s). Every other year group will undertake end of year tests set by the same authority who set the Year 2 and Year 6 SAT’s. These together with teacher assessment, will be used to measure children’s progress.
