For students to achieve success at Breakspeare School parents, students and school work closely together. Each partner has an equally important role to play in this partnership for successful learning.
Please see here our Home School Partnership Agreement 2015.
We encourage our parents to visit the school, to write regularly in the home-school diaries and to attend educational meetings at school. If you have any concerns or questions please contact the class teacher or a member of leadership as soon as possible.
Our forms of communication with the parents include telephone calls, home-school diary, letters, emails via Parent Mail, text messages via Parent Mail, parent evenings and workshops, target setting meetings, Annual Review meetings, Educational Health and Care Plan meetings, transition meetings, events and celebrations, multiagency meetings with our medical or therapy team or with other professionals. You will also receive a curriculum report twice a year about your child’s progress.
In order for us to further develop our links with the parents and get feedback we regularly send questionnaires and surveys to the parents. All views are important – weather you are pleased or have a concern. If you do have a concern please share this with the school as early as possible – partnership is crucial and we aim to address any concern at its very early stages.
At Breakspeare School we are very proud of our students’ achievements and the hard work of our dedicated staff team. We are always seeking to refine our practice in order to maximize our students’ potential. Please feel free to forward any questions or feedback to the email address below
Parent View is used by Ofsted to gain parents’ views of schools. We ask that you give your views in this way in addition to the surveys that school carries out. ~You can access Parent View Ofsted by using the link here: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/
Message from Ofsted: Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school. Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behavior. If your child is at a boarding or a residential special school, it also asks for your opinion on five aspects of your child’s boarding or welfare. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
