The annual School Information Evening took place in February 2014. The evening was a great success with parents, staff and governors joining together to share updates on the School’s priorities for this year before breaking off into smaller workshops on phonics and writing.
For those of you who were unable to attend, the slides and handouts shared on the evening can be viewed by clicking on the links below.
During the evening all parents and carers were invited to join with us in our consistent drive for high expectations at St Anselm’s. As a school, we pride ourselves on providing children with the good start to learning that they deserve so that they are well equipped for their future. But we cannot do this without the help and support of people at home.
Please take the time to support your child with homework tasks, whether it be practising phonics, spellings, mental arithmetic facts, hearing your child read or supporting more challenging tasks. Research (and our own school results) has found that children make the best progress when home and school work together. I would especially ask that parents monitor the quality of children’s homework—correct use of spellings, punctuation and neatly presented work on appropriate paper is something I would ask you to insist on when your child is learning at home. Thank you.
