Kildrum Primary School

Home School Links

The school actively promotes links with /carers in a number of ways. Parents/carers are welcomed into the school to help class teachers whenever possible/carers. Curricular workshops are organised throughout the year.


In September each year we have an “Open Afternoon” when the children lead their parents/carers around their new class, look at work and meet the teacher. In November we have the first of our Parent Consultation Meetings where parents/carers and teachers discuss the child’s progress to date. The second meeting is held in March, just prior to the Easter holidays.


“Class Workshop” events are held in each class twice per year. These involve parents/carers being invited into the school to spend some time sharing in their child’s learning. It’s a great opportunity for the children to show the parents/carers what they’ve been doing and for parents/carers to gain a better understanding of more ways in which they could support their child.


Parents/carers are also invited into school each year to see their child preform in their class assembly. These assemblies take the form of the children presenting work which they’ve been doing in class in a more formal way. They can involve songs, plays and computer presentations.


“Really enjoyed my child’s assembly. It was great to see and hear what the class had been working on rather than him trying to explain his day at home.”

We encourage all parents/carers to sign up to our Class Dojo app. This is a great way to get frequent information about the work going on in classes. The app is used in school to give the children points for good behaviour (and for taking points away for poor choices) and it can also be used to send messages to and from parents/carers. Each week teachers send a “class story” which includes some photographs of the children at work, short films can also be sent. Parents/carers can also use the Class Dojo app as a method of communicating with their child’s teacher.


“Love being able to message using Dojo as calling during school hours not always possible.”
