*Please note that due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we do not allow parent volunteers in school at this time.*
Each half term a Pupil Information Leaflet is sent to parents. These include the curriculum areas being covered.
In addition, we hope to invite parents to an afternoon at least once per year where children can share their learning experiences. At the end of the school year a written report is sent home and written parental comments are welcomed. Parents may request to see their child’s teacher at a mutually convenient time to discuss their child’s progress and targets throughout the year.
We endeavour to keep parents informed at all times. A newsletter is sent home each half term as well as after special events in school. The School website is also a valuable source of information and well worth a look. Urgent or immediate messages are sent via our text messaging service.
We also have a Parent Support Adviser who works with families in terms of specific issues. Please contact Jo Howe via the school office for more information.
Our school uniform consists of:
Embroidered school sweatshirts and polo shirts can be obtained from Cliff’s in Doncaster town centre.

Should a child wish to move from school dinners to packed lunches then a full half terms notice should be given in writing.
The main aim is the enhancement of the partnership between school and home, promoting opportunities for parents to experience first-hand what occurs in school thus furthering their knowledge and understanding of the basic aims of the school.
In addition it is felt that parents may be able to offer specific talents and skills that will complement the school curriculum and it provides an opportunity for children to meet and work with other adults thus developing their skills of adaptability and co-operation.
Parents who express a wish to work voluntarily in school are given a booklet containing essential information relating to the school day and safety procedures. Helpers will be asked to fill in a form detailing their preferences in relation to time, year groups, etc. Rotas may have to be established in order to ensure that all offers of help can be accepted at some stage throughout the school year and therefore we ask parents to make an initial commitment of one term only.
For security reasons all parents who are helping in school must report to the office and sign in, and on leaving sign out. The school is committed to ensuring the safety of all children on the school premises. All regular volunteers will be required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
