Claverdon Primary School

Home-School Partnership

We strive to promote an effective partnership between home and school based on mutual understanding and trust. To this end we endeavour to be a very open school, sharing as much information as possible with you through a variety of means.

We have a Home School Partnership Agreement which we ask parents and pupils to sign when they start school

Each Friday afternoon you will be e-mailed the latest school newsletter and your child will bring home other useful letters or other information.  We do try to only send information home to you on Friday so that you can retrieve this from your child’s bag if they forget to hand it to you.  If your child is absent on Friday then the information is available from outside the School Office. 

Parents can come into school to share in class assemblies and open days. There is a family open morning on the last Friday of each month, when parents are invited into school from 8.30 am with their children to look through their work and share their achievements.  Many then stay for merit assembly when a wide range of achievements are celebrated.

Termly meetings are arranged for parents to meet class teachers to review pupil progress and to exchange information which may have a bearing on your child's development. The staff write to parents at the beginning of each new term explaining their class work for each topic. Towards the end of each Summer Term parents will receive a formal written report of their child's progress for the year. 

Copies of all school Policies are always available for you to read on the website (statutory) and in the school office.

If, as a parent, you feel you have a concern, you should firstly speak to your child's class teacher.  If unresolved, please contact the Headteacher.  If you are still unsatisfied you may wish to contact the Chair of Governors.  Ultimately, you have the option to approach the Local Authority.
