Parent

Voice

 

Sunningdale values the views, thoughts and wishes of all stakeholders, particularly parent/carers.
 
We have our very own Parent Liaison Link who promotes partnership with parent/carers. Sam Howarth is a parent herself to Josh in Year 6. She is here for you and if you would rather speak to a fellow parent please contact school and she will get in touch with you.
We also have parent governors who will be happy to talk to parents. Please contact school if you would like to speak to a Governor.
 
We have an ‘open door' policy and encourage parent/carers to come into school regularly whether it be for an informal ‘chat,' for weekly coffee mornings, Family Assemblies, open evenings, ‘Awareness Raising' Sessions, Therapy surgeries or more formal multi-professional meetings.
 
If you wish to share your ideas, feelings or want to contact school we are happy to receive e mails or parent/carers may telephone, write in their child's diary or call into school. We also now have ‘Parent Share’ available for parents to view their child’s on-going progress at school and our new ‘Twitter’ link on the ‘Home’ page.
 
We also welcome parent/carer feedback through our annual questionnaire.
 
We are committed to enabling parents to have a ‘voice' in school. We believe that Sunningdale is the sum of all its parts: children, parents/carers, staff, governors, partners and supporters and each has a part to play in the success of our school.
 
We, as a school, are always learning and would love to work with all our stakeholders, particularly parents and carers, to further develop the learning opportunities for pupils at Sunningdale. If you would like to become more involved in the life of your child's school please contact Jan Patterson our new Family Partnership Adviser Jan.patterson@schools.sunderland.gov.uk

 

We also like to involve parents in their child’s assessment and we currently have two ways of doing this. The first is to supply our administrative staff with your email address so that they can add you to the school’s ‘Parent Share’ system.  Parent Share allows us to share individual observations of your child’s progress with you via email. Parents can also  take an active role in contributing to their child’s observation portfolio by sending in their own observations by replying to shared reports or by emailing directly to inbox@2buildaprofile.com including a photo or video and comment in the reply.

Family and home is the most important element in any child’s education so please take the time to sign up to this wonderful service and you can play an active role in the school’s assessment of your child’s progress and attainment.
