For Parents

Young people derive the best value from their education when parents and school cooperate for their benefit.

Parents have a vital role to play in helping their children establish good homework routines, alerting the school when problems arise, taking an interest in their progress, and providing the stable and caring home life which allows young people to thrive. The school in turn provides parents with regular information about their child’s progress, to consult with parents when important decisions are made, and to make parents feel that it is approachable and responsive. 

Attendance and punctuality

We expect your child to be in school, on time, every day. Please don’t take holidays in term time.  We believe that excellent attendance underpins successful learning.  Children are expected to be in their classrooms by 8.50 am.  

Your Help is Invaluable

Parents are warmly invited to come in to school to support us, with everything from hearing readers to accompanying us on trips.  If you think you might be able to help or you have a skill that might be useful to us, we would love to hear from you - your help really is invaluable. 

Contact with Your Child's Class Teacher

We have an open door policy at Sacred Heart School which welcomes parents into our school to discuss their child’s education.  Teachers are always happy to see you to discuss any concerns you may have about your child’s education or welfare. We would much rather you came to us as soon as you are worried and we can work together to achieve 

the best outcome for your child. With your help we can in most cases resolve the problem quickly. Teachers are available most evenings except Wednesdays when we have a staff meeting. If you wish to give a message to your child’s teacher in the morning please see their teaching assistant or leave a message.
