How are parents involved in the school? How can I get involved?
Who can I contact for further information?
At Ashbrook Junior School, we believe that the involvement of parents/carers is vital to your child’s learning.
Parents/carers of each child receive a copy of a report regarding progress three times per year. These reports coincide with Parents’ Evening arrangements so that you have the opportunity to discuss the report with your child’s class teacher. If you require further information, guidance or wish to arrange a meeting, please contact the school office (01332 673785) or contact your child's class teacher or the school's SENDCO (Mrs Johnstone) via Class dojo.
Parents/carers of children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities will be invited to other meetings to review their progress towards targets on their Inclusion Passports. This forms part of a cycle of assessment and action known as the ‘Assess-Plan-Do-Review’ Cycle. Assessments are made regularly. These can be formalised assessment tasks or activities, or records of observations. As a result of these assessments, plans are made which are normally recorded as part of the child’s Inclusion Passport. At this time, parents/ carers views and those of the child form the basis of the provision made to support the child in moving forward with particular areas of difficulty. Once particular interventions have taken place, progress is reviewed and new targets are set. Inclusion Passports are reviewed with parents/ carers and children at least three times per year.
Throughout the year, there are many opportunities to come into school, including: enterprise mornings and events; Christmas Crafts morning; performances and concerts and many more. These events are published in advance on the school newsletter.
Our school SENDCO offers 'drop in' sessions regularly and the details of these are given on Class Dojo. Any parents/carers are welcome to attend.
We welcome parents/carers support in school. If you feel that you could spare time to listen to readers or that you have a particular skill which could help us, please contact the school office. The PFA (Parents and Friends Association) is also active within the school, arranging fund raising activities, social arrangements and supporting the school. All parents/carers are welcome to join and attend meetings.
