🤝 Parent Meetings
Twice a year a formal meeting will be arranged between parents and their child's key person. These meetings give parents and key persons the opportunity to meet and discuss children’s progress and share any concerns about their development.
The meetings take place in the Autumns and Summer terms a little after half term.
a) If you feel you don’t get the chance to talk to your key worker at pick up or drop off or have a concern about your child’s progress and would like to arrange additional meetings beyond the formal key worker meetings please email [email protected] and we4 will organise a meeting for you.
b) If we have any concerns regarding your child’s progress or behaviour, we will also reach out to you to arrange a meeting so that we can put a plan together to help support your child.
c) Dependent on current social distancing requirement these meetings may take place over the phone or via zoom instead of in person.
