You asked for a variety of parent/carer classes to run throughout the year during school hours.
We are providing a programme of courses and workshops including First Aid, English, Maths and ICT. All training is at our Academy during school hours to make it accessible to all our parents/carers. These courses have been very popular and have received positive feedback. We have more planned for the coming months.
You asked for our Little Learners Playgroup to run on Monday mornings so that more parents/carers could attend.
We moved Little Learners Playgroup to Monday mornings. We have lots of babies and toddlers attending. This is an excellent way for your little one to play and learn with others and a fantastic opportunity for parents to talk to others and make new friends. It also makes starting school easier as they have already started without even knowing!
You asked for half termly newsletters to inform you of what the children are doing in school and to give additional information for parents/carers.
We produce a half termly newsletter called the “Whetley Word” focusing on what the children have done in the previous half term. The newsletter also has additional information such as safeguarding advice, behaviour updates and attendance percentages and information. There is also a section on future events including dates of school visits and holidays.
