Parental engagement

The Art and Design department works extremely hard to engage all parents in the learning of their children. Parents evenings, open nights, parent workshops and exhibitions all give us the opporunity to share the success of our talented young people and inform parents about the next steps in their child's learning. We also use Pupil Profile booklets to record assessment in the lower school which are regularly taken home by pupils allowing parents to discuss learning with pupils and feedback to staff. Parents are also engaged with leanring through topic leaflets which are issued at the start of each unit in the lower school to allow parents some understanding of the work which their child will undertake and ways in which they can support learning at home.
