Reporting to Parents
We are constantly seeking to strengthen our partnership with parents and one of the ways we do this is through reporting to parents and actively involving parents in their children’s learning. At the start of the year, we have orientation sessions for new families; these are repeated termly for those new to Tanglin. We also have Information Evenings for all parents in August; this is an opportunity for parents to meet the new class teacher and to find out about the year group routines, special events and expectations.
Each term, we welcome parents to an open morning, which provides an opportunity for children to share and celebrate their learning. We also have more formal Parent Teacher Conferences in October and again in March. This is an opportunity for parents to meet with their child’s class teacher on an individual basis and review their child’s learning and next steps.
Progress Reports are written at the end of Term 1 and all children receive a summative report in June.
We have identified the structured opportunities for parents to meet with teachers, however, we do have an open door policy in that teachers are always available to meet with parents at a mutually convenient time throughout the year and discuss any concerns they may have.
