What should I do if I am worried about my child's progress?
If you have any concerns about your child's progress we ask that you arrange an appointment to speak to your child's class teacher.


How is my child prepared to move on?
We have close links to Christleton High School where the majority of our children attend. The year six teacher meets with the head of year 7 and we plan opportunities for the children to visit and experience the school before they start.

With in school we hold move up days prior to a child moving year group. The teachers also hold meetings to discuss the children before they move.


Will my child get homework, and if so how often? How long should it take to complete?
Yes, homework is set each week. This includes an expectation that the child will practise their reading regularly.


How often should I read with my child, and for how long?
If possible, daily for at least 10-15 minutes, especially in Reception and KS1. Whatever time you can spare, please make sure that it is quality time enjoying a book together.


During SATS and other testing, will my child know that they are being tested?
Yes in KS2. In Reception and KS1 this is done less formally when possible.


Do I need to prepare my child for SATS and other testing?
Regular support and monitoring with homework is really helpful but talking to them about their work and helping them with any revision or testing, for example, on their times tables should suffice.


Where can I get more information about SATS and other testing?
Ask your child’s class teacher or Mr Mitchell or look up SAT’s online where detailed information and sample tests are available.
