Welcome to Easterside Academy

"Giving the Chance to Shine"

Parents

Staff at Easterside Academy work hard to develop good partnerships with parents and carers and this has been recognised through our recent achievement in gaining the Leading in Parental Partnership Award in April 2014.

There are many ways in which parents can become involved in the life of the school and in their child’s learning journey at Easterside.

 

Stay and Play

Parents of children in the Early Years (nursery and reception) are invited to stay and join in with planned activities every Thursday at the beginning of their child’s session. The timetable of activities are shared with parents termly and can be found in the Academy Calendar.

Open Mornings

parents

Each team Key Stage 1 and 2 plans an ‘Open Morning’ for parents and carers. The morning usually starts with a short assembly in one of the halls followed by six activities that the parents and child do together. The activities are usually linked to a theme and/or a topic the children have been learning about at school. The morning ends with tea and coffee and a chance to reflect on what you have seen. These mornings are a huge success and a great opportunity to find out what your child’s learning is like in school!

 

Class Assemblies

Each class plans and delivers an assembly for their Key Stage and their parents each year.

 

Fund Raising

Each year Easterside Academy raises money both for the school and for charities. In the past this has included events such as the Macmillian Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning and the annual Summer Fair. We have fantastic parental support at these events!

Parent Courses and Workshops

We are working hard to provide parents and carers with a variety of parent courses and workshops within school. Where possible we will provide courses and workshops that also include opportunities for you to work with your child. Recent courses have included:parents 2

  • ICT and Biscuits
  • Fun with Food
  • Behaviour
  • Bedtime Routines
  • Making Story Sacks
  • Parent Phonics

If you are interested in a parent workshop or have an idea for one, please speak to either Mrs Roffe from our Care Team, or Mrs Bazanek in the nursery.

 

Consultation Time

At Easterside Academy ‘Consultation Time’ is held in the Autumn and Spring Term with an additional one in the Summer Term following the child’s annual school report, if parents or school request one.

At Consultation Time both your child’s teacher and your child will meet you for a ‘Learning Conversation’. We plan for these meetings to take place during the day as well as after school in order to allow a longer length of time for the meeting, as well as your child being an active participant in it. The purpose of the meeting is to share and discuss how your child is progressing and to look together at their next steps and how we can help them to become successful.

We try to accommodate parents as best we can and hope that by doing it in this way, parents will have some quality time with their child and their teacher. Children make the best progress when parents and school work together!

Like you we want the best for your child and together we can help them to succeed and be the best they can be! If you would like some time to talk to just the teacher alone at these meetings, please make this clear to the teacher at the beginning of the meeting.

Feedback

There are many other times when you will be invited into school to see what your child and their class have been learning about or to see how the school is developing and improving. Where possible we actively seek parental feedback and report back to you through the Head Teacher’s letters and website how we have taken feedback onboard.

Your feedback is valued and parents are encouraged to complete an annual questionnaire when they pick up their child’s annual report at the end of the year. Parents can also have their say on Parent View.

 

Documents

We have a variety of different documents available for parents each year, explaining the progress of our school, reports on spending and helpful tips on how they can be more involved in their child's time at school and their child's learning. The documents currently available are as below:
