Mildmay Junior School
We feel that the involvement of parents has a significant impact on pupil attainment and therefore encourage parents to take an active role in their children’s education.
We have many ways of communicating with parents, both formal and informal. Each child has a reading log and a homework book, both of which enables communication between the parents and teachers as well as informing parents of homework set, spellings to learn and other relevant information. Each half term a Class Letter is sent home to the child, informing them about what they will be learning, any visits or visitors and other useful information.
The school sends out a fortnightly bulletin celebrating successes within the school, recent events and forthcoming events. We hold parent/teacher consultation evenings, display/celebration evenings and occasionally workshops for parents. Our Special Needs Coordinator has regular review meetings and contact with the parents of children on our Special Needs register.
Each class performs a class assembly, once each year, and parents are invited to watch and then join staff for tea or coffee. We also invite parents to attend other performances during the year.
We have an active Parents’ Association who meet regularly through the year. They work hard to raise much needed extra funds for our children. All parents are welcome to join them.
Parents have opportunities to support reading activities and help with school visits.
In September parents are invited to come along and “meet the new class teacher” to get a general idea of what to expect through the year. On Tuesdays from 3.30 – 4.00 staff are available to answer any general issues. If you need to talk to a teacher at any other time please come to the office to arrange an appointment.
