Partnership with Parents

We encourage parental support in school at all levels, with your own children at home, attending parents meetings in the autumn and spring terms, attending class assemblies and other special assemblies, or even helping in school. We aim to keep parents informed by sending weekly newsletters each Thursday and termly topic overviews.

The school newsletter is also accessible through visiting our website: www.dukestreet.org.uk and through Parentmail.  For further information regarding registering for Parentmail, please contact Mrs Nicholls in the office.  We have a Home School Agreement which sets out the expected joint commitment and responsibility of the school, parents and pupils.

We have a well established system of rewards and sanctions. We reward with stickers, house points, certificates and trophies.  Where Behaviour is not up to expected standard, we contact parents promptly.  Behaviour and Discipline policy ( behaviour policy 2016 2017) copies are available in school.  (electronic or hard copies of the complaints policy are available in school)

The PTFA meets informally throughout the year. New members with fresh ideas are always welcome.  Enjoyable social events such as discos are organised whilst money raised in the Summer Fair and Bingo Nights/ Domino Drives has helped buy many “extras” such as computers.
