Homa Atib is our Family and Community Co-ordinator.
We build close relationships between home and school because we know that children are happier and learn better if we work well together.
Teachers are busy in the morning but are usually available in the playground after school for a brief chat. If you wish to speak to them for longer, you can make an appointment and they are always pleased to meet with you.
We hold parent/ child/ teacher meetings once or twice a year. The children's main school report is given to parents in February with an update in July.

Understanding your child's school report
42 mothers and fathers attended the session.
Here is their feedback.
"The information session was excellent. Leanne was fantastic, she explained every step of the report with examples and I have learnt a lot. Please thank her for me."
"It was reassuring when Leanne mentioned the team work and how a team of staff write children's report not only the class teacher. My child got a new teacher this term and I was worried how the new teacher knows my child to write the report."
"It was great to have this information session just before the report, excellent!"
"It was too much information to take in, Why the government had to change the old system."
"I have learnt how to read my child's report or ask the class teacher to explain it to me if I don't understand."
"It is good to know that parents are important for the school as much as the school is important to parents. Thank you"
"Thank you for reminding us again and again to attend the session. Lots of parents have attended, so many questions and answers, it was almost an hour session. Maybe next time run it in the Hall."

32 mothers and fathers attended the session.
Here is their feedback.
"The information session was excellent. I have learnt a lot. Thank you."
"I have learnt how to help my child's learning through games and activities without spending too much money."
"It was great. I didn't think you can have so much fun with house hold objects."
"It is good to know what to do with your child at home especially during holidays when the weather is cold. Thank you."
"After today's session I have learnt that I can help my children's learning although I speak very little English. I thought I was useless, can't do anything but this session gave me the confidence to sit with my children and do things together."
"Gill's display reminded me of the traditional games we used to play when I was a child. Thank you "
"I would like to thank the school, especially Homa for organising these sessions and reminding us all the time of the activities happening at school. Thank you"
