Parents in School
A successful partnership with parents in key to a school's success.
At Green Meadow Primary School, we aim to begin this partnership from the moment you attend one of our Open days or hear your child has been offered a place at our school.
Prospective new EYFS parents are invited to come and have a look around the school during annual Open Days during the Autumn Term. Sessions take place during the school day. If you are unable to attend an Open Day event, you are more than welcome to make an individual appointment at a time more convenient.
Parents' evening take place twice annually. This is usually in November and March. This will provide an opportunity for you to look at learning in your child's books. At these parents' evening, you will also be given a copy of your child's latest attendance record.
There is also a further optional parents’ drop in session in July after our annual reports have been issued to discuss the contents of these further.
You will receive a comprehensive report on your child's progress towards the end of the Summer Term.
Parents are invited into school throughout the year for various workshops covering a variety of topics such as phonics, problem solving, crafts, puzzles, and healthy living.
Parents are also invited into school at the end of term topic celebrations, including assemblies and presentations.
From time to time, we have special events and shows which parents are invited to. This could be a whole school exhibition following Art Week, a celebration of a themed week, a National event celebration or an outside visitor.
Parents are kept up-to-date with events on our Newsletters via Arbor. These are also published on this website.
From time to time, we undertake parental surveys to understand your views about school. We report back on the survey in Newsletters, addressing any specific issues that have arisen.
Parents are also invited to complete an on-line questionnaire on the Ofsted website Parent View. We could encourage all parents to take part.
At Green Meadow, we have a dedicated Pastoral Team who work closely with families and offer support. Please do come and talk to us in confidence if you are finding things tough. We can provide practical help with school uniform as well as emotional and behavioural support. Even if we can't help you directly, we will always point you in the direction of someone who can. Everybody needs help at some point, so please ask.
