Parental Involvement

As a parent you have more knowledge and understanding of your child than any other individual. Therefore, we feel that it is only in working in partnership with you, the parents, that we can endeavour to provide the best possible care for your child.

Observations are taken frequently of children during free play and focused activities.  These help the practitioners to plan appropriate activities to further your child's learning and development in each of the 7 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. These observations are shared with you to encourage your involvement and contribute towards your child's learning so we are able to work in partnership.  

Our 'OUTSTANDING OFSTED' report 2012 states that 'The parents are extremely well informed about all aspects of their children's achievement, well-being and development. For instance, regular parents meetings are held, to share information about each child's progress and current interests. Parents also receive information via daily sheets, notice boards and verbal feedback from the staff. This highly inclusive system of communication ensures that there are consistent and productive partnerships with parents. As a result, children make positive progress across all areas of learning.'
