Arundel CofE Primary School

How we communicate

We greatly value our strong partnership with parents and guardians and communicate in a number of ways to keep everyone informed of life at ACE:

Weekly Blog

We use Weduc - our school app to communicate with parents and guardians.

The Headteacher's weekly blog is an in-depth presentation which delivers hope and celebrates the achievements of ACE children. By publishing their successes, we believe this provides another way for children to see that they are valued as individuals in the eyes of God and that we value learning in all shapes and forms.

A weekly letter is also sent via Weduc.  This provides a summary of activities going on in school -both long and short term and is a way to help busy parents stay in touch with life at ACE.

Facebook and Twitter

Our Facebook and Twitter accounts are updated regularly with news and events, and is an opportunity for parents to interact and comment on the various feeds.

Twice-yearly reports

Parents receive reports on their children's progress in the Spring and Summer terms.

Voices

Throughout the year, Mrs Bingham leads Voices.  Voices is a place for parents to come and share how practices at ACE can be even better.  New school initiatives can also be discussed to gauge what will work best for ACE families.

Twice-yearly Parents' Evenings

Parents' Evenings take place in the Autumn and Spring terms and provide an opportunity for parents to discuss their children's progress with the class teacher, to look through their children's books and to ask any questions they may have.

Class booklets

Class booklets are sent out to parents at the beginning of the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms, outlining the area of study and curriculum that will be covered for that particular term.

Meet the teacher

At the beginning of the Autumn term parents are invited to meet their children's class teacher, to hear about the topics that will be taught during the year and to ask any questions.

Sharing on a Tuesday afternoon

Every week every class shares their successes online. We also encourage children to bring in their certificates, cups, medals and awards from out-of-school activities so that we can celebrate their achievements together. Parents have access to these videos. This means that no one misses a celebration and pupils' wider families can also enjoy them.

Morning welcome

A senior member of staff will be at the gate every morning to welcome children and parents and to answer any questions.

If you have a concern

We are always here to listen and to help in any way that we can. If you have a concern and would like to speak to a member of staff, we would recommend that you make an appointment to speak to your child's class teacher prior to the Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or Headteacher. You can make an appointment by contacting the school office, either by telephone or by popping into school at drop-off or pick-up time.
