Parents as Partners

At Batley Parish J I N C of E School we believe strongly in developing effective relationships with parents as partners in order to enhance a child's learning and development. We take time to get to know you and your child so that we can work together to achieve the best outcomes for each child. We run weekly 'learning together' sessions where you can come and spend time learning with your child. These sessions allow you to find out how your child is learning at school and how you can extend this at home. These sessions offer you the opportunity to spend time with your child in our fantastic classroom. The Nursery and Reception team are approachable and friendly and there to help any answer any questions or talk to you about how to support your child's learning and development at home. 

We invite you to come and meet us at our Welcome Meeting which is held in the Summer term before your child starts school in the September. We also run stay and play sessions during the second half of the summer term where your child can come and meet their new teacher and explore their new classroom. If your child does not attend our Nursery then we will also arrange to come and visit them in their setting.

In the Autumn term we run parents evenings which allows us to discuss with you how your child has settled into school and discuss how we will be supporting their learning and development. We also also run a Parents Early Reading workshop so that you can find out about how your child learns to read  at school. We provide lots of tips on how to make the teaching phonics and reading  at home fun! 

Each half term we also send home a topic web, which explains what the topic will be that term and what we will be learning to do at school. We also send a homework grid with different activities that you can choose to do with your child at home. This is a brilliant way to share your child's learning at home. 

You will also be given a log in to access your child's online learning journey on 'Early Essence'. This will allow you to add things that your child has been doing or enjoys at home.

Finally, we send home a class newsletter each week where we share with you what your children have been learning to do at school.

We also like to share lots of photographs of what and how your child has been learning here on our website so please take a look!

Learning Together Sessions

Our weekly 'Learning Together Sessions' are Wednesday morning 9:00-9:30 and Wednesday afternoon 1:00-1:30. You will be able to engage in our weekly activities with your child and ask our experienced key workers any questions you may have.

Half Termly 'Stay and Play'

In the finally week of every half term we offer a 'Stay and Play' 1 hour session. This is where you will be able to enjoy indoor and outdoor themed activities linking to our half termly topic or a festival.
