Communicating with parents is seen as essential at Plumtree School in developing a home school partnership and developing the best possible learning journey for each child.
Formal Written Reports are both summative and informative; they provide information on children’s individual progress and achievements. An overview of the child’s performance goes out in November. A full comprehensive subject based report is published in July.
Home/School Reading Records provide a two-way communication about each child’s progress in reading. These records are exchanged regularly, with teachers/teaching assistants supporting children with their reading on a regular basis.
Individual notebooks are provided for some children so that general information about achievements, behaviour etc. can be shared on a regular basis.
Information emails and letters from the Head Teacher are also sent out when required. Weekly email notices (the What’s On) inform all parents of the coming week’s events.
Facebook Page and other social media for regular updates and photographs.
