Parent / Teacher Consultations

We offer a parent/ teacher consultation every term to enable you to discuss your child’s progress and any concerns you may have. Throughout the year we also hold a number of “open afternoons” at which your child can show you all the wonderful work they’ve done. Once a year, an annual report is produced which contains all of your child’s test scores and sets out targets for the next year. Children also have targets in English and Maths which are reviewed on a termly basis.

Parental help in school

We welcome all parents or grandparents who would like to help in the school. Please contact your child’s class teacher if you have any spare time.  In keeping with our Child Protection policies regular visitors will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Check.

Complaints Procedure

Parents are encouraged to contact the class teacher in the first instance should they wish to discuss any concerns; the Head of School and Principal are available, normally by appointment, to discuss any matters relating to the school. Should these avenues not resolve any matter satisfactorily then the Chairman of the Governing Body can be contacted via the school. If you remain dissatisfied all parents have the legal right to contact the Secretary of State for Education. A copy of the Village Academy Complaints Policy can be found on the Village Academy website.

Family Liaison

My name is Mrs Workman and I am the Family Liaison Officer (FLO) based at Lynsted & Norton Primary School, part of the Village Academy and I work closely with the other FLO’s in the Academy schools.

My role is to provide pastoral support to parents/carers across the Academy and help with any issues that you may have in relation to supporting your children, both at home and in school. I work to encourage parental involvement within school, signpost to agencies (where appropriate) and support children in school. Should you have a personal concern or school related issue, then I am here to help and I have access to a number of agencies who may be able to provide support to you and your family. Any query, large or small that you may require assistance with, I am here to help.

I work closely with the Heads of School and Mrs Goldsworthy (Academy Senco) as part of our Inclusion team, where we endeavour to take a holistic view of the needs of each pupil to ensure they make progress and are happy.

I liaise with all school staff, always in the best interests of the children and their families. I work impartially and confidentially and can provide a 'listening ear' if you ever need advice or support.

I run a lunch time pastoral support group assisting children across all age groups to form firm friendships and encouraging them to develop coping strategies and a positive wellbeing.

My hours of work are every day from 8am until 4pm and I am always available on the playground from 8:40am onwards. Further appointments may be made directly with me or through the school office on Tel: 01795 521362.

I can also be contacted by email:-

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards

Mrs Workman , Family Liaison
