We believe clear, effective, two-way communication between home and school is a great way to support your child's learning in their early school years. You are welcome to come and talk to your class teacher in their classroom any morning from 8.40am. If you think you will need more than a few minutes, please ask to arrange an after-school appointment at a mutually appropriate time.
Every child has a Home-School record book which you are encouraged to use when reading with your child, completing homework tasks or learning spellings.
We promote use of the communication app Parent Hub to help parents, carers and other family keep in touch with our busy schools. Visit your App Store and download your link using the handle @WirksworthInfants or @WirksworthCofE
We send a newsletter home at the end of each week, packed with details about what we have been up to in our schools, important notices for parent(s) and carer(s) and dates to enable you to plan for events coming up. We try and group all our paper information so it goes home on the same day, but please check book bags each night to be sure you don't miss anything.
We also use ParentHub as a text service and RMIntegris to send emails directly to your child's main carer. Both are authorised by DCC Audit Services and used widely throughout Derbyshire schools.
Copies of other letters home are usually on the classroom noticeboards - or please ask if you think you need another copy.
In their Home-School Link Book, parent(s) and carer(s) are asked to sign to acknowledge their obligations under our Home-School Agreement and Internet User guidelines.
Parent(s) and carer(s) who are entitled to receive income-related benefits are encouraged to apply for Free School Meals. This ensures the schools receive its full quota of Pupil Premium Grant from the Government.
