Parents as Partners in Children’s Learning
We look upon Grestone Academy as one unique and diverse extended family – which includes our children, our staff, our parents and our governors. The support and co-operation of parents is highly valued and essential to children’s success and happiness. Parents and teachers are partners in the education of children, and we encourage open and positive relationships between them. You are always welcome to come into school to chat to the staff or, if you have the time, to offer your help within the classes or to support the children on an educational visit.
There is a staff and parents group who meet regularly (PTA) and raise money for the school by running fun events and the Christmas Fayre. If you would like to get involved, please speak to Miss Foulkes or Miss Akhtar.
We always welcome parents in school and we are available to discuss your child both informally and at the two parent evenings in October and February each year. However, if there is a problem, please don’t hesitate to talk to your child’s class teacher or make an appointment through the main office on 0121 6756787.
