Communication with parents

How do I find out about my child’s day at Nursery when I collect him/her?
Your child’s class teacher or TA will be able to give you a brief run-down of your child’s day at Nursery.

How do you communicate with parents?
As well as daily verbal feedback, we also hold two annual parents’ evenings and a range of workshops and opportunities for you to come into class and look at your child`s work. Parents can also book an appointment to speak to the class teacher anytime.

What happens if my child suffers from separation anxiety?
Settling in can be challenging for some children. At Chobham, we care about making a positive start into school life and we aim to work in partnership with parents and carers, take settling in gradually and coming up with a personalised transition plan where necessary.

How can I be involved in my child’s learning?
There are many ways we like to work alongside our parents at Harris Academy Chobham. Here are just a few:

Each half term, you will receive a curriculum overview which will detail what your child will be learning that term.

Teachers will perform online learning observations and these will be shared with you via email on a half-termly basis.

We have an open-door policy which means we have day to day contact with all parents in the morning and at the end of the day.

Our special workbooks and child-centred displays are accessible in the morning and after school if you wish to view your child’s progress.

Throughout the year, we organise parent lesson observation days and workshops to give you an insight into how your child learns.

Parents are invited to bring in any work that children have done at home. This can be given to the class teachers via the ‘wow moment’ folders at the entrance to the classroom.
