Open days

Throughout the year we hold Open Days for parents. Parents visit the classrooms and find out more about the learning which takes place.

Here is some of the valuable feedback we have received:

“Very positive - good to see the children being engaged and involved in carpet time”

“It was a useful insight into my son’s routine at school. It was really nice to be able to look at his work books and see how he has been progressing in class."

“Overall I found it to be a very positive and enjoyable experience, which helped me to put my son’s learning into context.”

“I really appreciated the invitation to observe what my daughter has been learning.”

“It gives me perspective of what she is learning and allows me to continue the learning process at home.”

“We especially appreciate that the teachers challenge my daughter in her literacy and numeracy skills.”

“Nice to see all the children interested and participating in all activities"

“Today I found the open morning very eye-opening and helpful, was great to see how far she has come since September."
