Communicating with parents...

Schools are developing their own ways of communicating with parents electronically. For those parents with Internet access at home, ( and this could be every parent soon if Jim Knights, Minister for Schools gets his way) at work or on the go this offers a better bet than remembering to dig around in the bottom of the school bag every day.. although I suspect that this still will not guarantee every parent gets the right information at the right time.

St Vincents Catholic Primary have a separate blog for each class which lays out clearly what the terms themes with objects etc and links for parents to use at home. Then there are weekly updates and reminders.

The Foundation stage blog gives a good idea what its about. It's lively, informative and gives lots of websites for parents to share with the children related to this terms work. The link to each of the other class blogs is at the bottom of their class page.
