At Luckley we see partnerships with parents as vital in ensuring our girls are happy and successful at School. For many parents the move to Senior School marks a change in relationship with school. Pupils increase their independence and become a key part of the communication chain, resulting in less contact with school on a daily basis for parents.
With this in mind at Luckley, our aims are threefold:
• To have an ongoing dialogue with parents and guardians about girls’ progress, successes and needs.
• To keep parents and guardians well informed of events and procedures
through face-to-face contact, the School website, letters and ParentMail® communication system.
• To warmly welcome families into our community and to provide opportunities for socialising throughout the year.
Parents receive school reports on their daughter's progress. Each report will grade achievements and effort. Targets will be set and form the focus for the forthcoming term.
An annual Parents' Evening provides the opportunity to meet with academic staff. These start at 6.00pm and dates are listed on the calendar section of the website as well as being shown in the diary given to parents at the start of each term.
Contact with staff
The homework diary provides an effective communication tool between parents and staff. This should be signed on a weekly basis by one parent, to confirm that the homework has been completed. The diary also serves as a means to pass messages between staff and parents.
Should parents need to speak to academic or pastoral staff they would contact the School Office which will arrange for a return telephone call. There may be occasions when parents would prefer to discuss matters in person, in which case appointments in the first instance should be made with the form tutor. Appointments to see or speak on the telephone with the Assistant Headteacher/Head of Pastoral Care can be arranged through the School Office. Parents who would like to see the Headmistress should contact her Personal Assistant for an appointment.
