Working in Partnership

At William Shrewsbury we value the opportunity to work in partnership with families to best support children in their learning both at school and at home. We see this as joint venture and we are very fortunate to have so much support form parents and extended families here at school.

We offer a range of interesting opportunities during the year where we invite parents and grandparents into school to see first hand what happens in our school.

We actively encourage parents to get involved in many things during the school year including:

  • coming along to a Tea and Tissues session for Reception parents on their first day
  • family projects for homework,
  • attending a large variety of information sessions,
  • joining in with workshops and clubs,
  • attending regular reading in class sessions,
  • observing full lessons,
  • becoming a member of the Parent Forum
  • becoming a member of the PTA (AFWS)
  • coming along to support enterprise events
  • watching our many performances
  • joining in with family picnics
  • coming on family trips at the weekend and during holidays
  • emailing the class tecaher or using a Home School Diary for younger children
  • attending Parent Consultations
  • joining in with special events like the Bedtime Story Party
  • coming as a whole family to take part in our annual whole school Family Learning Party
  • sharing views regularly via the parent questionnaire
