Communication with Parents
Hawthorns School has an open door policy. Staff will always seek to respond to parents’ requests to meet or for support on the same day. Parents can contact school via telephone, class email, home/school book, face to face meeting and direct messaging through class Twitter pages.
At the initial meetings and transition visits, we aim to find out as much information about your child as possible. We complete detailed admission documentation with parents and carers to understand your child’s needs, their family, routines, development, previous school information, health needs etc. Parents/Carers can contact class to arrange a time to meet if they have any concerns.
Other professionals working with each child will also contact parents/carers as necessary.
Each class has their own Twitter page which has daily posts so parents can see what their child has been up to during their school day. We also have half term.
We have started to invite parents into school again for class assemblies and we hope to extend this by holding coffee mornings for parents in the future
There is a Friends of Hawthorns Association that relies on and involves parents in fund raising events.
We have a school website that has school information, including class pages and school policies. Plus our new Parentapp, which is our main way of informing parents about school matters.
We have a Family Liaison Officer, Mrs Jones to support home school links.
