Parent / Teacher Consultations

We offer a parent/ teacher consultation at regular intervals throughout the year to enable you to discuss your child’s progress and any concerns you may have.  At the end of the year, an annual report is produced which contains all of your child’s test scores and sets out targets for the next year. Children's targets in English and Maths are also reviewed regularly.

Parental help in school

We welcome all parents or grandparents who would like to help in the school. Please contact your child’s class teacher if you have any spare time.  In keeping with our Child Protection policies, regular visitors would be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Check and a senior member of staff would complete an induction session with you, which runs through our expectations, how you can help and Child Protection information.

Complaints Procedure

Whilst we always try to get things right, we don't always succeed. Parents are encouraged to contact the class teacher in the first instance should they wish to discuss any concerns; the Headteacher and Principal are available, normally by appointment, to discuss any matters relating to the school. Should these avenues not resolve any matter satisfactorily then the Chairman of the Governing Body can be contacted via the school. If you remain dissatisfied, all parents have the legal right to contact the Secretary of State for Education. A copy of the Village Academy Complaints Policy can be found on the Village Academy website.
