Engaging Parents

"X loves her school. We have seen her grow in confidence over the past year and most of this is down to the wonderful and a saint teachers in Reception class. We are so glad that we chose Stickney Primary School. Communication between home and school has been fantastic which has helped us support our daughter in her learning as best we can." Parent quote 2015


Here are ways that we engage parents in their child's learning:


- encouraging parents to come and look around and ask any questions before they choose our school

- an information evening before your child starts school

- parents evenings

- 'helping your child to read' information evening and behaviour support workshops

- encouraging parents to fill in questionnaires about what their child likes so that we can plan for this before they start school

- termly newsletters

- drop-in sessions

- weekly shared reading afternoons for parents and children. Next steps in learning are shared with parents during this session

- class assemblies

- end of year reports


We use Tapestry (an online leaning journal) to share photographs and videos with parents of what their child has been learning in school. It also enables parents to upload photographs and videos of what their child has been doing at home. This sparks learning opportunities that are offered in the classroom and shows children that we value what they do at home as well as in school. To ensure that children make the best progress possible, a child's next steps are shared with the parent/s via Tapestry.

"We have really benefited with the use of Tapestry as it's great to see what he has been doing in school." Quote from a parent 2015

"Stickney's use of Tapestry is one of the most effective ones I have seen so far." Quote from an EYFS moderator 2015
