Frequent communication is of vital importance in developing and nurturing co- operation between home and school. In our school communication between parents and teachers takes the following form;
- Formal Parent Teacher Meetings These are held during the first term.
- Individual consultation This occurs where a parent has asked for a meeting with a teacher or has been invited to visit the school to exchange information or to discuss matters of concern. A note to the class teacher/parent requesting such an appointment is always essential. It is also necessary that the purpose of the visit be stated so that teachers/parents may undertake whatever preparation is necessary with regard to information and records.
In addition to the above the following means of communication are also utilised:
- Notes in the pupil’s homework notebook.
- School noticeboard
- Parish newsletter
Details of school holidays or early school closures are always communicated in writing.
