Parents/Carers as Partners
It is vitally important to your child’s learning, development and happiness that we work in partnership together. We want you to feel welcome in school and at our school we have an open approach and are keen to hear how we can help. We would rather know sooner rather than later if you have a problem that needs to be solved. Please come in and talk it through so we can help as quickly as possible.
Finding Out General Information
We have a huge amount of information, recent letters, guidance and helpful contacts on our school website
www.birchington-primary.com This is being continuously updated so please take a look on a regular basis!
How can I find out how my child is progressing?
Class teachers are normally available to talk to parents/carers after school. They will do their best to see you straight away. If they can see you straight away after school on any other day they will. If they already have a pre-arranged appointment that cannot be moved they will make a mutually convenient time to meet. You can also speak to teachers over the telephone
In Phase 1 and Phase 2 your child will bring home an Achievement Card in Terms 1 to 5
Ask your child what they’ve been working on at school – you can guarantee they’ve been busy!
If your child has additional needs, please contact Mrs Callaway our Inclusion Leader

How can I find out about what and how my child is learning?
How can I give feedback?
We really welcome parents/carers into school to help in the classroom and listen to children read. All helpers are issued a Safeguarding and Induction Pack and are DBS checked.
Asking a question – Please ask!
