To help you understand how we communicate news and events at Lyndhurst, explore they key points below...
How will we communicate news and important information with you?
We communicate with our parents in a variety of different ways:
- Email- our weekly news ‘The Scoop’, Important letters and our Parent information Pack
- Text- urgent time sensitive information
- Twitter & Instagram (insert handles)- to celebrate what goes on in our school with parents and partner organisations.
- Student Planers- to communicate what a child is reading
When will we communicate with you?
Throughout the year there will be several opportunities to talk with your child’s class teacher. The first will be in Autumn One, this will be a presentation about what will be covered this year. There will then be a parent session in Spring and a Summer One.
At the end of the autumn and Spring term we will send you a short report detailing how your child is doing in standardised assessments. In the final Summer term, we will send a report that will include a more detailed comment.
In addition, teachers and the Senior Leadership Team will be on the playground at drop-off and pick-up. However, we know that this is not convenient for all parents and carers so you can also contact us by email.
For information about our curriculum, SEND offer or policies, please see our website.
Why We Communicate?
We know that good communication means that we all achieve the best for our children– that is why we are determined to continue to improve the way that we communicate. This is something we will be reviewing as the year progresses.
Communication is a two-way process. At Lyndhurst we expect all communication to and from our staff to be timely, polite and professional. If at any time, either party feels threatened or prejudiced the communication should be politely stopped and escalated to the appropriate person in our escalation system.
