Parent Consultations - Autumn Term

23rd October 2020


Dear Parents and Carers,

Parent Consultations: Autumn Term


After much discussion with management and consulting with other schools, it has been decided that due to the current COVID situation we will not be holding Parent Consultation Meetings this term.  However, we do value these opportunities to work together for the benefit of pupil progress and attainment.


We are not currently inviting parents into school other than for those times that take priority for safeguarding or health and safety reasons or discussion of and provision that comes within a dedicated government group.  As an alternative measure this term, staff will continue to make contact as the need arises and for teachers will write a short response your individual enquiries. 

In order to work in partnership with parents we are asking for you to list your top two enquires by priority, for the class teacher to consider within the overview; to be completed and returned by Tuesday 3rd November 2020. Teachers will then prepare a brief report to send to each of you in Autumn 2.


We think this is the best way to gather your thoughts whilst also giving you an update for this first half term. For your information we will include an indicator about attainment compared to age appropriate expectations at this point in the year and relevant comments about behaviour and attitude.


Thank you in anticipation of your support and co-operation for this initiative.


Please complete the following and return to the school as a hard copy direct to the class teacher or via the school office by email, stating the class name by Tuesday 3rd November 2020.


Please note if more than 2 queries are listed only the top two will be responded to at this time.


With kind regards


Mrs S Hulme MA, NPQH

Executive Headteacher
