Communications Home
We communicate with Parents via text message, email and letters, usually found in the children's book bag! Letters are also attached at the bottom of this page, in case your child forgets to tell you.

Homework

From the Reception class onwards we encourage the children to continue their learning at home. We also encourage parents to get involved, particularly in the early years when children are learning to read. For advice, on helping your child to read see here.

Homework tasks may include any of the following:
  • Reading
  • Learning multiplication tables and spellings
  • Research and preparation for English and topic work
  • Maths investigations
We always ensure that parents are informed about the type of homework their child can expect, when the work will be set and when it should be completed by.

Parent Helpers / Volunteers
Parents are always very welcome at Lindow and teachers make themselves available for discussions with parents on a daily basis. Many parents work alongside the children on a regular basis, accompanying us on school trips and visits, and provide valuable help with a whole range of school activities. If you are interested in becoming a parent volunteer you will need to complete a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) police clearance form, in line with Home Office rulings.

Parent Evenings
We have two 'official' parents evenings each year, in November and February, when parents are invited into school to discuss their child's progress with the child's teacher. Parents receive an annual report for their child towards the end of the school year in July.

What to do if you are worried/concerned about your child
  • Talk to your child's teacher as soon as possible at a mutually convenient time. If possible, always give the teacher some idea of what you wish to discuss in advance of the meeting. Most difficulties are resolved in this way.
  • If you still feel concerned, make an appointment to see the headteacher, outlining the problem briefly when you make the appointment. The Headteacher will work with you to resolve the problem.
  • If you still feel concerned then contact the Chair of Governors in writing via the school
Parent Workshops
We endeavour to keep parents informed about the primary school curriculum and developments within it. Parents will be invited to several of these workshops throughout the year.
