Parent and Family Support
Parents, Grandparents and Carers play a vital part in our school joining us for educational visits and supporting learning activities, such as sewing, library and gardening.
To help us enhance our cultural curriculum they often join us to share the customs and heritage of the diverse range of countries from which so many originate.
There are many ways to support school life at Riverhead Infants:
TO SUPPORT THE SCHOOL AND STAFF
TO SUPPORT CHILDREN'S EDUCATION
TO SUPPORT THE PTA
TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER

Report to Parents and Consultations
Opportunities are provided in the Autumn, Spring and Summer for you to have a private appointment with your child’s Teacher to discuss aspects of their education. These take place late afternoon and early evening to enable working parents to attend. Additionally two or three other occasions take place for you to come into school with your child to view their work. If you have any concerns connected with your child’s education you are asked to make an appointment to see your child’s Teacher at a mutually convenient time.
At the end of the school year, you will receive a written report on your child’s attainment and progress during the past year. In Reception this includes information about the Early Years Foundation Stage points they have achieved and in Years 1 and 2 the level of attainment achieved in the National Curriculum Core subjects of English and Mathematics and Science.
As required, we provide you each year with the summary of the Year 2 results to confirm the levels of attainment at the end of Key stage 1. This can be found in the "Governors'" Section of this web site under "Statutory Requirements".
