Parents are welcome at The Croft Primary School and play an important part supporting children’s learning both inside and outside the classroom. We aim to build on the early experiences that children have had with his/her parents. We want the children to feel secure, valued and confident and for them to develop a sense of achievement through their learning in school.
In Term 2, there are information mornings and evenings for Reception and Year 1 parents where we talk about how we teach reading, writing and phonics. There are also some ‘stay and play’ opportunities so that parents can see these skills in action.
In Term 3 Reception parents can enjoy more of these informal ‘stay and play’ sessions to see how we develop children’s speaking and listening, fine motor skills and early number skills. These happen on Friday Mornings from 8.45 – 9.30 a.m.
Throughout the year there are continuous opportunities for parents to find out about children’s learning at formal parents evening and more workshops when we near phonics screening time and other Government led standardised assessment times.
