Routines across school and home: Homework will be set on a Friday and must be handed in by the following Wednesday. Spelling tests will take place on a Thursday and new spellings will be sent home on a Friday. Reading records will be checked by teachers on a Friday and a dojo point given for reading at least five times over the week. Please note these are not to be used as a general communication tool but simply as a way of recording your child’s reading at home, and are used to look at progress in reading.
Progress and Attainment updates: Each week you will receive information regarding how your child has performed in their spelling test including which words they spelt correctly and those that they may need to practise further. In addition, each half term you will receive a copy of the common exception words spelling test (this is different to the weekly test) that your child has taken and which words they need to work on. Each week you will receive your child’s tackling table test and their score for that week.
Detailed progress and attainment updates will be provided once a term. In Autumn and Spring term this will be in the form of a parents’ evening and in summer term this will be as a written report.
Please note Year One parents/carers will receive a half termly phonics update inline with statutory requirements.
Communication with staff including teachers and the senior leadership team: If you wish to meet with your child’s teacher or a senior leader, please contact the office and they will schedule an appointment for you.
