in St Pat’s we are proud of our policy of being open and welcoming to parents.
Our parents have told us that they like to be kept informed about what is
happening in the school. A school newsletter is produced several times a year. There is also a notice board in the parents’ room where either the
school or the parents can display information. Of course parents also want to be
kept informed about how their children are getting on in school and
Parent/Teacher meetings are held once a year (with childminding and refreshments
provided). Parents can also come in at other times to talk to individual teachers
but we ask parents to make an appointment so that the teacher can give their
full attention and arrange for their class to be supervised.
Finally, we also have a home-visitation scheme, which is provided by the home/school/community liaison co-ordinator, a teacher from the school whose full-time role is support for parents.
