Parent and Carer Involvement

Reporting to Parents and Carers

We hold a Parents’ and Carers’ Evening every term to communicate progress and achievement. It is vital that you attend these so that you may support your child in his/her learning and share any concerns. In addition, at the start of a new school year, parents and carers are invited to ‘meet the teacher’ as a group. At the end of the summer term you will receive an end of year written report. To support this we encourage regular consultations and we will always find the time to talk about progress with your child.

Our Head of School and staff are around at the start and end of the day. They are available for quick, informal chats, but if you should require more time then we advise that you organise a meeting through the administrative staff or School Home Support Worker.

Parent and Carer Views

As part of our school self evaluation process we value feedback from the whole school community. Children, staff, parents, carers and governors make an essential contribution to school improvement. Information from surveys, consultations, workshops and discussions inform our school improvement planning, which lists whole school priorities, sets high expectations and shapes the school’s curriculum, pedagogy and well-being. This process helps us evaluate our work and directly influence our future aims.

Torriano Community Association

The Torriano Community Association plays an active role in school life and has raised money for many important projects. We encourage involvement at every level; from providing cakes to sell at school fayres to organising events. Money raised has contributed towards funding for our music and curriculum enrichment programme, the construction of ‘The Walkway in the Trees’ and our new garden. The TCA works closely with children, staff and families to encourage full participation in the school community and contribute widely to local and global charity events.

The school is a place of family learning which strengthens relationships with parents and builds partnerships with other community groups
