Parent/School Liaison

We aim to keep parents informed on a regular basis through a variety of ways.  These include class and school newsletters, parents' consultations, special events and other specific meetings.  The school has a formal Friends Association and we encourage parents to attend meetings and functions.  The Friends Association have raised monies for additional school resources which have benefited all pupils.

Parent Consultations
Parents are offered the opportunity of meeting formally with the teachers on two occasions in the year.  Appointments are arranged out of school hours and timed to take place in October/November and March/April.  Teachers determine their own appointment system.  Annual reports are sent to parents at the end of the academic year (July), after which parents have the option to discuss these too.

Parents Involvement/Volunteers
We wish parents to feel welcome in the school and to feel free to call in or telephone about any matter at any time.  Informal day to day meetings with parents are the most valuable.  All volunteers who express an interest in assisting with various activities in school must complete a 'Criminal Records Disclosure' check.  The Headteacher will examine the enhanced disclosure certificate and confirm the acceptance as a volunteer in Castle Park School.

Visits to the Head Teacher
These are welcomed at any time, but preferably by request so that the Head Teacher is able to ensure his availablity
