At The Woodside Academy, we know the importance of a strong partnership between the school and our families.

We try to give parents and carers as many opportunities as possible to encourage you to play a greater role in your child’s education.

Speaking to the Teacher
Parents/carers of Primary School children are able to see staff briefly any day between 8.50am and 9.00am. Staff can arrange to meet with parents after school or parents can ring the office to make an appointment to meet with the teacher at their convenience. 

Learning Review Meetings
These are held each term for parents/carers to meet their child’s teacher and discuss their child’s progress. 
All parents/carers receive a written report on their child’s progress in the summer term. Soon after your child starts school you will be invited to meet with the class teacher to learn about how the classroom is organised, and how the curriculum is delivered. Later in the Autumn term an individual appointment will be offered to enable you to meet the class teacher and your child to discuss their learning progress. In the Nursery and Reception observations are sent out every half term on To Build A Profile. There are Curriculum Information meetings every term for parents/carers to understand how to support their child/ren. We also hold meetings to share information about how we deliver the curriculum.
