Integrated learning with parents
Our passion for nurturing a love of learning Is evident in every area of school life and none more so in the way that we work with parents.
Open Door policy
We know that our girls will thrive when they believe that everyone in their life Is supporting and believe in them. Therefore, each day our playground is supervised from 8.15am for girls whilst our school building Is open for parents to drop In and speak to any member of staff until 8.40am. This permits excellent transparency and ensure parents and staff are working together
No homework policy
Beyond reading, we do not set regularly set homework for girls to complete at home. Instead, the girls In KS2 are given independent study homework slots during the school day. We believe this promotes the following:
- Girls develop excellent independent study skills and understand how to approach independent learning tasks effectively
- Teachers gain Immediate feedback regarding next steps required for each child’s learning
- Girls leave school at 4.30pm having completed their homework, attended an extra-curricular club and therefore, home time is for family discussions, reading and play.
