Support for Primary Parents
The school aims to offer support to parents and families to support their children’s wellbeing, learning and development. Staff are happy to meet with parents to discuss any concerns they may have and to support in any way they can. The following guide offers an insight into routines and expectations for your child when they start school in Nursery or Reception.
Our aim is to work with parents at every stage of their child's journey through school and we believe that our high expectations for learning can only be met if we share information and work in partnership. The following guides summarise what we exepct children to achieve in English and mathematics in Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and in English, mathematics and science in Key Stage 2 (year 3 upwards).
The school runs a variety of workshops and events, led by school staff or by partners from other agencies and which are held in the school itself or in the community suite. Presentations from our most recent parent workshops are avaiable by clicking on the links below. Other resources to help with learning are available from the Home Learning Resources page (left).
For details for forthcoming workshops and events, see the calendar of events by following the link on the left or from the Berryfields Parents drop-down menu above.
Information for parents on supporting children's learning at home and on how they can help keep their child safe from harm can be found in our pupil pages.
A range of information for parents seeking further support with childcare, learning, parenting and a whole range of other areas can be found at the Family Lives website and more localised information and support is available through the Buckinghamshire Family Information Service.
Additionally the Berryfields Children’s Centre, which is on our site, works in partnership with the school running a variety of activities and services for children from birth to 5 years-old. This includes health visitor clinics, family support, parent and toddler groups and a variety of other workshops and events. Timetables of activities at the children’s centre or run by other local organisations in the community suite can be obtained from the school office.
