Partnering with Parents
At Cherry Garden School, we recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents. We have an open door policy, which means that parents are welcome to come at any time to join the class and work with their own child and other members of the group. This needs to be discussed with teachers to ensure the class is on-site at the time of the parental visit.
We have a number of specific activities which parents/carers are welcome to join on a regular basis. For example, there are a range of workshops, social events and whole school activities, such as sports days, festivals and celebrations.
We have a ‘Parent Support Advisor’ who leads workshops for parents on a range of topics and is available to meet individually with parents.
We really value the knowledge and support parents bring to the school and expect parents to work closely with the school to support their child’s learning at home.
We have a parents room for parents who need to support their child during their start at Cherry Garden School.
Our new assessment tool, has been created in partnership with Tapestry, to give parents the opportunity to have an active part in their child’s learning and assessment.
