At Harnham Infant School, we place an incredibly high value on our relationships with parents. An effective parent partnership involving two way communication is vital to children's success and educational development.

Here are just  some of the ways in which we encourage parents to get involved at Harnham Infant School:

  • Being available to talk to daily, either on the gate or playground at the beginning and end of each day

  • An informative and detailed school website, including class blogs.

  • Sending home weekly newsletters.

  • Sending home termly curriculum letters and learning maps.

  • Sending email and text message updates to parents.

  • Providing opportunities for parents to get involved e.g. by attending a ‘Stay and’ session.

  • Giving parents opportunities to attend school shows, museums, sports days etc.

  • Holding regular ‘Coffee and Chat’ sessions for parents.

  • Conducting parent questionnaires to ascertain valuable feedback.

  • Organising regular parent and teacher evenings to discuss children’s progress and next steps for learning.

  • Sending home summative written reports about your child’s progress and development.

  • Encouraging parental involvement in the HSA (Harnham Schools Association) and support at events such as Saturday Sweep Up days.
