Helping your child
Westerings provides parents with opportunities to regularly visit classes to see children's work, and to attend workshops and parent training opportunities throughout the year. Feedback from parents has been incredibly positive; "making me feel very happy and secure knowing they are leading my child’s development over the next few years, I feel our children are in great hands!" [KS1 Parent]
We value the support of Parent/Carers and recognise the importance of collaboration in a child's learning and development. It is also important that a child takes some responsibility for their learning and behaviour.
When children join our school, we ask Parents/Carers and pupils to read and sign an agreement between home and school. This clarifies expectations for all concerned.
Partnership is key to a child's happy and productive development at school and we look forward to working with our new Parent/Carers.

NB - Maths 'Stages' and 'rf' documents show the required methods and areas of study for Mathematics for primary aged pupils. Please contact Mrs Gaya via the school office for further advice or support.
We have been asked by parents to list the apps which are used in classes on our iPads. Our main apps used to support learning are:
DBS (CRB) checks for school volunteers
The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged into the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). This is why you may now hear CRB checks being called DBS checks. Schools may ask volunteers to be vetted in this way to ensure the safety of the pupils in their care.
Parents wishing to find out more can visit www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check/overview or download the documents below (titled DBS....)
