Parent Partnerships:

 

Our strong relationships with parents supports the children to achieve and make the best progress they can.

Teachers are always willing to discuss ways to improve your child's progress and emotional well being. 
 
Children have work they can do with parents at home. Staff are always happy to suggest other ideas.

Homework is carefully differentiated according to children's needs and reflects what is taught that week or is linked to the learning

Parent and Children's Wellbeing:

Supporting your child’s health and wellbeing

If your child:

Has difficulty coming into school

You are worried about their health, behaviour, progress

They have friendship issues

Your child is a young carer

There are difficulties at home which may be having an impact on your child’s wellbeing

Then your child’s class teacher is the best person to speak to and if they are unable to help they will be able to sign post you to people in school or external agencies who can.

Our SENDCo, Mrs Irene Field may be able to refer your child to the following agencies:

  • Speech and Language Team
  • CAMHS
  • Health visitors
  • Young carers
  • Living Stable lives
  • Links Family Services

 

If you have spoken to your child’s teacher and you feel that the matter has not been dealt with appropriately then you can speak with Mrs O’Connell our Headteacher who is on the playground each morning or who can be contacted via the school office on 01442 211963 or via email head@holtsmereinfants.herts.sch.uk
