Reporting to Parents / Carers
Working together with parents / carers is crucial at Morley Victoria. We firmly believe that staff, children and families should work together in a home school triangle. If we do this, our children will make very good progress in every year group and leave us as well rounded individuals with good social and emotional skills, good citizens and have the academic ability to confidently make their move to high school.
As a parent / carer it is very important that you understand how your child is progressing. You will be formally invited into school on two occasions to discuss your child’s progress. In October/November we hold a parents' consultation evening which we call 'Learning Review Meetings' where we discuss how your child has settled into their new year group and how they are progressing. In February we invite you in for a second Learning Review Meeting to discuss how well the children are getting on; their attitude to work; their willingness to learn; about homework and how your child is progressing against the year groups objectives and end of year expectations.
At the end of the year in July you will receive a comprehensive report summarising the year as a whole, the level at which your child is working and the overall progress they have made. The report is written under the eight areas of our creative curriculum and sets out targets for the following year.
You will also be given the opportunity to meet your child’s next teacher during ‘Transition Week’ in the Summer Term. We enjoy meeting you and it gives you an opportunity to put a face to a name.
We do operate an ‘open door’ policy in school and are happy to discuss any issues and concerns you may have throughout the academic year. We find that if matters are addressed quickly then the outcome is a happy one for all parties concerned, particularly the children. The health, happiness and safety of our children is at the very foundation of our school, everything we do is centred around this. If it’s important to you, we need to know! It is always better, under these circumstances, to talk and not email.
