Parents are a very important part of our school community and our children’s learning. We aim to keep parents fully informed about the work of our school and their children. We send a weekly newsletter out to parents, we update this website regularly plus we have text message and e mail systems in place so we are able to keep parents fully informed about school life.
At Rugby Free Primary School we have an open door policy for Parents. We invite parents into school regularly to join us for Inspire Workshops, Sharing their Children’s Learning Journal, Special Assemblies and events such as Mothers Day and Father Day lunch.
We encourage Parents to contact their child’s Classteacher, Phase Leader, Deputy Headteacher or Headteacher if at any time if they are worried about the progress or welfare of their child, or require further information. It is best to telephone for an appointment although Miss Milewski and Miss Butters are always at the gate so it is often possible to catch them if it is just a quick word you would like.
In addition there are regular occasions when parents are more formally invited to school to discuss their children’s progress with the staff at parents evenings. These take place:
- During the first half of the Autumn Term, to enable parents to meet their child’s new teacher and so that information can be exchanged.
- During the first half of the Spring Term for parents to be informed on their child’s progress in all aspects of their education.
- During the Summer Term when there is an open evening to enable parents to discuss their child’s report.
Each class teacher provides a termly sheet of curriculum information for parents. This gives brief details of the areas which will be studied in all subjects during that term.
Weekly home learning is set including several challenges for parents to help their children complete. Many of these can take just a few minutes or much much longer depending on how much time you have to give to helping your child to progress further. In addition to this, we ask that parents read with their children and talk about their book on a daily basis.
