Parents & Carers
At Peareswood Primary School, we believe that strong, effective relationships with parents and carers is in the best interests of our children. We understand that our parents and carers know their child best; what engages and motivates them, their strengths, passions and interests. By combining parents’ knowledge of their child with staff’s expertise in teaching and learning, we can ensure the best outcomes for our children.
Our school values the relationship it holds with the whole school community, and actively seeks to provide opportunities for these relationships to flourish. We seek to involve parents and carers in their children’s learning and education by sharing information about the curriculum that they are participating in. As part of the curriculum philosophy, parents and carers are invited to help celebrate a new topic by preparing for Big Bang Days, sharing a curriculum overview which sets out a term’s learning and, ending in a celebration of learning whereby parents and carers are invited into the school for Pride Time during three points within the school calendar.
We encourage parents and carers to tell us what support they feel they need and aim to provide information, whether through our newsletter, curriculum overviews or workshops. Furthermore, parent consultation evenings provide an opportunity for parents and carers to learn more about their child/ren’s social/emotional and learning progress throughout the academic year.
We welcome parent and carers who may wish to further support our children more widely by providing regular support in the classroom, for example with reading or learning activities. We value particular knowledge, skills or expertise that many parents can provide to the benefit of our children, further broadening their experiences and aspirations.
If you would like to volunteer your time, please do contact the school office to speak to our Community Liaison Officer.
Our school is very fortunate to have a dedicated, enthusiastic and tireless PTFA who are current parents and carers of children in our school. Friends of Peareswood work in partnership with the Headship Team and our Community Liaison Office, to raise funds to support the school. The funds are used to enhance all the children's educational experiences by financing additional programmes and equipment.
Friends of Peareswood host fundraising events and initiatives throughout the school year, the proceeds of which are reinvested back into Peareswood Primary School. All our events and initiatives are made possible by parent volunteers.
If you would like to enquire about supporting the PTFA, please get in touch with our Community Liaison Officer or use the enquiry form on our Contact Us page.
