Our partnership with parents is integral to providing your child with the best possible education.
Parents help out with clubs and school trips, as well as assisting teachers by supporting children’s reading. We benefit from a great Parent Teacher Association called ‘FOSBS’ which raises valuable funds for the school whilst providing an opportunity for parents to get to know one another better.
Our parents have assisted in making repairs around school, building new storage facilities, helping with maintaining the grounds and organising fund-raising events. They have helped with PR, the BIG READ, hearing individual readers, preparing resources, PE lessons, sports matches, scenery and costumes for productions, Sundridge Christmas market, the summer fayre and music for church services.
We take our responsibilities to parents very seriously. Three times a year parents are invited to discuss their child’s work with the class teacher. The teachers and the Headteacher are also available to meet with parents when the need arises. A written report on a child’s progress and achievement is sent home at the end of each school year.
We keep parents informed about school activities with weekly newsletters, through e-mail and our website www.sundridge.kent.sch.uk.
We believe that parental support, encouragement and good communication are essential to help your child’s learning, so at Sundridge and Brasted we are very fortunate that our parents don’t like sitting on the sidelines or feeling left out. There are many ways in which parents can support their children and the rest of the school, whether it’s in the classroom, playing sports, going on trips or lending a hand at one of the fantastic PTA events. Whatever your skills, we will find a use for them! To find out more about helping out, call into the school office and chat to Helen Prestage who will be able to give you more details.
Please note that all helpers in school have to be DBS checked.
