Parents as partners:
We hold parents in the highest regard, they are after all our children's first teachers, as a result throughout a child's time at Rillington we strive to build positive, supporting relationships with all our parents and carers. We have an open door policy, this enables parents to meet/chat regularly with our staff, we find this strengthens the bond between home and school.
In order for parents to be knowledgeable about how and what their children are learning we offer a range of events, such as parents in class days and workshops throughout the year, termly reports and parent conversations as well as a wellbeing afternoon each week for parents to come and chat to staff over a coffee and a piece of cake.
Parents in class:
Christmas crafts - Christmas around the world.
December 2021 - we were able to safely invite parents into school to learn alongside their child(ren) about Christmas traditions from a range of countries around the world.
Most parents and carers country wide have found this a time of great challenge mentally and in response to this we have put together a support e-booklet that is designed to offer you and your family some ideas and steps to feeling good. The e-booklet also contains many links to good support websites that will provide more in-depth support with specific areas of mental health. The overarching message is that you are not on your own and there is a lot of support out there - either through your academy or through national support groups.
