Parent Partnership

Developing strength in parent partnership.

Here at Girnhill Infant School, we believe that parents and staff working together in partnership is essential to a child’s individual needs being fully met. These are some of the ways in which we work with parents and carers:

Inspire Events

Each year at Girnhill Infant School, Inspire events are held in every year group. These have proved to be a huge success with staff, children and parents thoroughly enjoying them.

Teachers plan the Inspire events around the arts / sciences / sports and wider curriculum to engage children in all subjects taught in school.

Events are planned in advance and are shared on our academy newsletter with the dates for your diary.

Open Door Policy

At Girnhill Infant School, we promote an open-door policy to encourage parents and carers to be involved within the school community.

In addition to parents’ consultation evenings, we promote a positive relationship between school staff and parents therefore invite parents into school to discuss their child.

In order to maintain the smooth timings of the school day, we ask that parents/carers contact the school office on 01977 702261 or via email to to request a call back or an appointment with your child’s class teacher.

Meet the Teacher Meetings

Each class has a ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting at the beginning of each academic year as an opportunity for parents/carers to meet the staff teaching the children.

Within these meetings, focus is placed on:

  • The curriculum taught to this year group
  • Organisation including planned Educational Visits and PE days
  • Homework expectations
  • Introduction to key members of staff
Help Your Child at Home

Every academic year, we hold core subject workshops for parents/carers to attend in all year groups. The sessions are focused around reading and mathematics core skills and ways in which parents/carers can support pupils whilst learning at home.

Miss Robinson (Maths and Writing Leader) or Mrs Littlewood (Reading Leader) would be happy to discuss ways in which parents/carers can support pupils whilst at home. Please contact the school office to request a telephone appointment.
