Parents as Partners

We firmly believe that for children to get the best education it is about a fantastic partnership between home and school. We operate an open door policy and welcome any questions, feedback and opportunities to support you. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can help you, your child or family at all on:


How do we involve families?

At Batley Parish J, I and N School in Reception we welcome your involvement in your child's education.

We invite you to...

Stay and Play Events

These are linked to special events or festivals for example:

A Welcome Stay and Play

A Christmas Stay and Play

An Easter Stay and Play

A Celebration Event (at the end of the year)

Learning Together and Workshop Sessions.

These are opportunities for you to come and see your child learning something in particular or an information session for families to learn how to support at home. For example, a phonics workshop. or parent consultation. 

Story Suitcase

We love to share stories in our school. Each week a child is chosen to bring home the story suitcase. Inside you will find a book, hot chocolate sachet, Cuddles our Reception bear and a notebook to record your thoughts about the story. 

Mystery Parent Reader

Each week we welcome parents and family members to come along and share their child's favourite story from home with the class.  Remember to keep this a secret from your child, it's lovely to see their face when they realise it's their special person!

Family Worship

Every Monday morning straight after drop off (9am) we welcome you to attend our Family Worship. 


We share our class learning on Twitter. Remember to follow us @BPReception to see all of the wonderful things we do. 


We track your child's learning journey using an online system called Tapestry. You will be able to see all of the wonderful activities and learning that takes place in school and also add to it at home! We welcome your home contributions all you have to do is log on, click the add observation and save it for us! We also use Tapestry to upload home learning ideas to consolidate learning from the week. This is saved under the 'Activities' section.

Please download the Parent Hub App to receive all of our letters and correspondents from school. 

Monthly Newsletter

Each month we send out a newsletter. This has important information about our learning, up and coming dates and lots of exciting ways that you can help at home. We send this out via the Parent Hub App.
