Parents

We believe that parents are the first educators of their children and, therefore, we encourage a close partnership between parents and school from the outset.  Regular school tours take place during the year to allow families to visit. Before the children start in the Nursery or Reception classes, children and parents attend an open day event. In addition, school staff make home visits in early September.

Parents receive regular newsletters from school. Infant and Early Years staff send weekly letters home which cover homework and the week’s learning news. Junior children use a homework diary or teachers liaise with parents over the Internet via on-line learning platforms  which are secure managed learning environments. Throughout the year, a range of workshops are held to keep parents informed about curriculum matters and to suggest ways to support children at home.

Open Evenings are held each term for more formal contact between parents and teachers.  In the summer term, parents are given an end of year printed report. If parents would like to chat about issues relating to their children at any other time, they are welcome to call in before or after school, telephone or e-mail us.

Parents are invited to class and school assemblies, concerts and events from time to time. We welcome support from parents in school and on trips.  This can be arranged by prior discussion with the class teacher.  In line with national guidelines, all parents and helpers who spend time in school are required to hold a full DBS check, details of which can be obtained at the school office.

  • Welcome

    We offer you a warm welcome and thank you for showing an interest in Spring Grove Primary School.

    Spring Grove is a happy school with a positive and inclusive ethos, within which we aim to make everyone feel safe, secure and valued. We are proud of our diverse cultural community and encourage all children to achieve their personal best, academically and socially. We believe that children flourish when home and school work together. We encourage parents to become involved in their children’s education and the life of the school. We aim to work with parents and carers to develop caring attitudes, thoughtfulness, mutual respect, self discipline, self confidence and good manners alongside academic progress. We treat all of our pupils as unique individuals who will become independent learners and view their education as a positive experience.
