PARENT / TEACHER PARTNERSHIP
Here at St. Helen's, we believe that parents have an important role to play in the education of their children and we greatly value their support and encouragement.
Parent / Teacher Consultations
During the Autumn Term an Information Meeting will be held. Specific information regarding curriculum and daily arrangements are discussed and shared.
A parent/teacher meeting is held during the Autumn Term where targets are set for the coming year. These are normally held in October for Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2) and in November for Foundation Stage.
Another parent/teacher meeting is held in the Spring Term, normally held in February for all year groups. This meeting allows the teacher and parents to discuss a child's progress and how best to help a child at home.
The Summer Term meeting is a celebration of the year's achievements. Children are encouraged to bring their parents to the school to show them their books, Art, work, displays - an opportunity to 'share their learning'.
The meetings in the Autumn and Spring Terms are for parents only; no children should be brought into school on these occasions. However, in the Summer Term we welcome all family members, including brothers, sisters and grand parents.
In addition to the above meetings parents are welcome to make appointments with the school office, to see the class teacher at any mutually agreed time to discuss progress and/or any concerns.
Please Note: Only one appointment per child at Autumn and Spring Consultation evenings.
