Communication with Parents
Good communication between school and home is critical for ensuring that children thrive in school. Parents and staff are expected to share information about children’s successes and any emerging concerns they may have informally as they arise. Teaching staff are usually available at the end of the school day for a quick chat, should the need arise and may ask to arrange to see parents by appointment, should a longer conversation be necessary. Parents should email teachers using the year group email (email@example.com, yeartwo@ etc) , if they are unable to see them at the end of the day regarding lengthier pastoral or academic information. Messages regarding collection from school, school lunches, trips or other practical matters should be communicated via the school office.
Parents receive all our latest newsletters and other communication via email and more concise or urgent messages via the Arbor Parent and Guardian Portal app. The Arbor portal is also used for school meal and other payments, and for club and event bookings. Parents can login to Arbor from a desktop computer, using the username and password provided by the school, when or shortly after their child is enrolled at the school, and are requested to download the app from the Appstore (for Iphone users) or Google Play Store (for android). Once downloaded, parents should login and ensure that they have enabled notifications.
