A Working Partnership
We believe that families and carers are co-educators alongside the school. As such, it is important that we have a close relationship with our children and their families. When your child starts at Barton Hill Academy, there is always a home visit to meet the family in less formal surroundings and swap information. This enables your child to feel safe and secure in the knowledge that their new class teacher and all the adults who will be helping them understand their individual needs and talents.
If your child is starting in Nursery or Reception, we hold Parent Information sessions to introduce the staff and go through all the aspects of school life to help parents with the many questions they may have.
During the school day, families can contact the school in various ways. There are always members of the Academy Leadership Team on the playground before school and the class teachers are available at the end of school. Our Family Support Worker can be contacted via the school office or morning playground.
We have celebration of work days at the end of each Theme week where parents are invited to come in and see the exciting learning that has taken place. We have open mornings throughout the year where parents can come in and spend half an hour in class with the children as they learn.
Three times a year parents have the opportunity to attend Family Learning Conferences to discuss their child’s Learning. These are led by the children so they can share their successes and targets. During the other terms, there are progress updates for every child.
Our Family Room is open every morning with information sessions every week around different aspects of school life.
Our thriving family Room offers a variety of opportunities weekly including: Parent forums; ESOL courses, stay and play, resourcing for the classrooms and a space for The Friends of Barton Hill parent group to get together to discuss fundraising and issues to support the life of the school.
Friends of Barton Hill
The Friends of Barton Hill are our fantastic parent group who run our carnival and other fund raising activities during the year. They desperately need to expand so please see the office for information how you can become involved.
