Partnership with Parents is vital and very welcome in our establishment. Every opportunity is given to parents to be involved in activities. Parents are kept informed of the everyday happenings by means of home/school diaries. They are asked to use the diaries to keep us up to date on anything which might affect their child.
In Willowbank School we aim to provide a good quality service. We are committed to maintaining good lines of communication with everyone who uses the school whether parent, pupil, member of staff or visiting specialist. The school “Open Door” policy isappreciated by all of the parents as is the home diary system. In the diaries, information is passed between home and school. Information of a more general nature is sent out by letter to parents. In addition a newsletter is sent out termly to parents. Parents and carers are welcome into the school. We are happy to discuss anysensitive aspects of your pupil’s learning including Sexual Awareness, BehaviourManagement and other issues.
Parents are extremely welcome to phone or visit to speak to the management team or staff at any time. Parents are encouraged to highlight any concerns or issues, in the first instance, to the class teacher or to the Head Teacher or Depute Head Teacher and an appointment will be made, at the earliest convenience where we will look to work together to find a resolution.
We have a Parents’ Room and we involve parents in their child’s learning through ILPs,evidence folders, informal and formal education reviews, information meetings, Parents’afternoons, newsletters, reports and school events.
