At Cranberry, we recognise each child as an individual, and aim to give all children every opportunity to realise their full potential. We believe that a firm partnership between the school, parents and the child is essential if we are to achieve this aim. We therefore ask all parents and children to enter into our Home/School Agreement.
The school will:
Maintain a high standard of education, keeping in line with national government requirements, within a broad and balanced curriculum which meets the needs of your individual child
Care for each child’s safety, happiness and well-being and foster feelings of confidence, self worth and belonging
Encourage children to do their best at all times
Endeavour to meet the requirements of children whatever their needs to achieve their full potential.
Ensure that each classroom is a positive and stimulating learning environment.
Set homework to extend the curriculum work in school
Teach children to develop a positive attitude towards everyone regardless of difference in gender, race, culture, belief, values, age, and need. Be actively open, welcoming and responsive at all times to parent/carers and provide opportunities for parent/carers to become involved in school life.
Communicate effectively and sensitively with parent/carers and ensure that staff are available to discuss any concerns you may have about your child’s progress or welfare
Provide regular meetings to discuss the progress of children, indicating strengths and areas for development through individual targets
Provide prompt information about behaviour or class work that may be a cause for concern or celebration
Provide clear information about homework tasks
Provide information to parents about school activities through regular newsletters, open days and meetings.
Keep you informed about the school’s policies and guidelines on behaviour and equal opportunities and other general school matters
Provide a range of after school activities designed to enrich your child’s educational experience
