Commitment to achievement
Pupils, parents, teachers all sign a ‘Commitment to Achievement’ agreement. This is a joint promise that all of us will put in the time and effort required for our children to succeed. Parents are expected to support children by supervising home learning, ensuring that children attend school and wear the correct uniform.
Parents and carers are an integral part of our school community, and your feedback forms an essential part of our ongoing development and improvement. We regularly run surveys and sessions to gather your views on the education your child is receiving, and to understand where we can do better.
You can share your feedback via these channels:
- Ofsted's Parent View tool. This survey consists of 12 short questions around topics such as teaching and behaviour, and will feed into our ongoing development plan
- Directly with a member of our staff
- The main school office
Reporting to parents
During the year, there will be opportunities to come into the academy on a more formal basis to discuss your child’s progress and to consider how we can all support their continued learning.
However, parents/carers are always welcome to have informal meetings with their child’s teacher, at a mutually convenient time, or to arrange a more formal meeting if needed.
Twice yearly, reports on individual children will be sent out at the end of the Autumn and Summer terms. These reports will outline the progress that your child has made, together with individual targets for further improvement. There will be an opportunity for all parents/carers to comment on the report at the parent/carer consultations.
In addition to this the academy will hold open days and parent surgeries on a half termly basis for you to observe in class progress, teaching and routines as well as playing an active role in the development of the academy.
We hold workshops for parents to help parents with their child's learning and development at home.
We also collect a series of guides and resources that are available on Spark. This covers topics such as supporting your child's learning, keeping safe online, and maintaining good mental health.
