We value our partnership with parents and seek to involve them in all that we do.
Here are some of the ways that parents and carers can be involved with our school;
Join the Friends of Downs View and support their fund-raising efforts
Become a Governor
Help in the classroom
Come to our Curriculum Workshops and Parent support programmes
Attend Parent Consultation Evenings
Join in with Working Party days
Come to Class and Birthday Assemblies
Share your views and ideas about the school with staff
Support special events
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Thank you to all parent/carers who attended our Macmillan Coffee morning. It was a great success, not only raising money for a worthwhile charity but also a great opportunity for parents to have a coffee and a chat. We are still counting up the monies and will let you know the grand total on Monday. Many parents have requested for more coffee mornings so Natasha will be organising these as a regular event – watch this space!
We want to do everything we can to support you as parents and carers. We like parents to feel that there is nothing they can’t ask for help and support with. If we can’t help directly, we can find someone else who can.
Parent Support Programmes
We offer a number of parent support programmes on our school site. These range from ‘Helping your Child to Succeed’ to ‘The Incredible Years’. We also link up with Suresteps Children’s Centre to deliver programmes for parents. You can talk to Suzanne about what’s going on and where.
Our next parenting programme, ‘Helping your Child to Succeed’, commences November 6th. Please ask in school for details.
