Success at school is closely linked to the encouragement, interest and support which you, as parents, give to your child.We aim to establish a strong partnership between home and school to enable you to play this vital role.The partnership is beginning as you read this brochure, and is reinforced by our Home-School Agreement, individually signed by the Headteacher, parent and pupil. This outlines those things that the school will do to support each pupil, and the commitments which each parent makes to support their child in school.
Once you have chosen Moor Park High School and Sixth Form there will be a meeting during the summer term when we will give you all the information you need to ensure a smooth and happy transfer for your child.
From the first day that your child joins Moor Park High School and Sixth Form, there will be a carefully planned programme of Parents’ Evenings, reports and informal occasions.As our part of this two-way process, we will keep you informed of your child’s progress and achievements, and there will be many opportunities for you to share with us any worries or concerns that you or your child may have, so that, together, we can put them right.
During the first term there will be an informal meeting with your child’s Form Tutor to discuss the ‘settling in’ period, and pick up any worries which your child may have talked about to you.A further Parents’ Evening comes later in the year, and similar ones are arranged as your child progresses through the school. Every half term, you will receive a brief summary of your child’s progress and achievements in all subjects, in addition to a detailed annual written report.
Our Home - School Association is open to all parents, and gives you the opportunity to become involved in wider aspects of school life. Parents have an important role to play on the Governing Body of the school, and regular elections are held for these positions. In addition there are many informal occasions, such as the School Production, when your support is most welcome.
The partnership of parents, children and teachers ensures that your child gains maximum benefit from school life.
