Reviewing School Policies

We asked, "How can we improve the current school's policies?"

You said and we did:

  • Explain any jargon, e.g. IEP (Individual Education Plan)

  • Add glossaries where appropriate

  • Make the homework process easier to understand

  • Avoid repetition in order to simplify the policies further

  • Add a disclaimer to offer electronic and full copier

How can you help us meet those key policies?


  • Discuss and encourage the children to earn rewards
  • Work as a team with the teachers when your child is involved in a behaviour issue
  • Encourage your children towards achieving 100% attendance


  • Provide your child with an appropriate work space, free from distraction
  • Regularly read with your child, even once they are fluent, questioning them about their understanding of the text
  • Check the quality of the work produced before submitting rather than doing it for them.

Attendance and Punctuality

  • Do not take holidays during term time
  • Ensure your child arrives at school punctually and is ready for learning every day
  • Ensure the school is aware of who is collecting your child


  • Ensure that parent filter software is installed and kept up to date at home
  • Actively monitor your child online, especially if using social networking
  • Talk to your child about staying safe online and with other devices regularly
