At Rangeworthy School, great value is placed on the work done by parents, both in supporting your own child and the school in general. We recognise that successful education is a partnership between school and home. Parents are welcomed into school, helping in class and on school trips. We greatly value this help, as it enables us to enrich the curriculum and helps to develop the feeling of community within the school. Parents (and grandparents!) usually help with such activities as playing games, cooking, craft, changing library books, computers etc. Help can be on a regular or occasional basis. If you feel you could help in any way, please see your child’s teacher.
Weekly homework is set for children, which is tailored to the needs of different children but comprises activities such as reading, maths, phonics, spellings etc. Please encourage your child to complete the homework each week and help them to develop good habits of always handing in homework on time. If you would like clarification about any homework task, please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher.
Communications with Parents
We always make ourselves available to parents to talk about children’s progress. Appointments can be made by arrangement as and when needed. We meet parents three times a year at Parents’ Evenings and issue written school reports in the summer term. Parents are also invited into school regularly to share ideas about school development.
Fortnightly newsletters keep parents up to date with forthcoming activities and events in which children are involved. These are normally emailed although paper copies can be requested if preferred.
The School Association
The Rangeworthy School Association welcomes anyone with an interest in the school – parents, grandparents, staff, governors, former pupils and villagers. Social and fund raising events are arranged at least once a term, which enable the school to benefit from amazing levels of support in providing extra resources for the children. The School Association have generously supported the school by providing the reflection garden, books, play equipment, musical instruments, Learnpads, Maths and Science materials, etc.
