Supporting the Parent, Supporting the Child
At Longacre, we want parents to be part of the journey. We are a school which openly embraces parental involvement and parents have face-to-face contact with teaching staff on a daily basis, our preference to clinical email. The teaching staff focus on teaching and nurturing the children, not distracted from their primary role by responding to emails.
Education at Longacre is a joint venture between parents and staff and together we aim to achieve the very best for each individual pupil. Both parties develop a different perspective of the child as our children are always dissimilar in each environment and communication is key to ensure maximum achievement and happy children who are well supported and nurtured.
Parents are involved in all aspects of school life; from voluntary reading, accompanying trips, enjoying ‘Come and See What We Do’ afternoons, attending workshops on internet safety to daily sharing of great work. Open and honest relationships are crucial and there are plenty of opportunities, both formal and informal to develop these with both staff and specifically, the Head. All staff, including the Head, know the children as if they were their own and are always happy to advise and support in every way.
