Shade Primary School

Parent Voice

At Shade we feel that involving parents in their child’s learning is crucial in ensuring that children make the best possible progress. We try to get parents involved in a number of ways:

  • Parent’s Evenings/Open Afternoons – Opportunities for parents to come into school and share their children’s work.
  • Fortnightly Newsletters – Keeping parents informed about what is going on in school and also providing useful help at home tips to support learning.
  • Parent Information Evenings – To provide parents with the knowledge and information they need to support their child’s learning at home
  • Parents in school weeks– To provide opportunities to work alongside their child and support in producing work
  • Opportunities to volunteer – We welcome the help of parents to support with reading, art and design projects and also when embarking on educational visits.
  • The school also has an open door policy and parents are always welcome to come in and meet with class teachers to discuss issues related to their child.
  • Our school website also contains a wealth of information to inform and support
