Open Days

We have regular Parent Open Days where we welcome the parents and carers into the school to have an informal meeting with the teacher and have the opportunity for the pupils to discuss and show off their learning. The pupils really enjoy these sessions and it proves a useful touch point for the school to collate information and feedback about how we are performing. These are the pictures from this term’s Open Day as well as the comments from the parents. Thank you for your input for these days – we really appreciate your efforts.

We also ask the parents to jot down comments on the work of their children. We feed this back to the class teachers and to the pupils. The children are very excited to read the comments and we find this to be highly motivating and encouraging. Here’s a snap shot of some below:
