Parents and Carers

Research shows that where parents and carers are actively engaged within the school community their children achieve more.

We believe that you are the experts and know your child better than anyone else. We value working with you to ensure your child has the best educational outcomes we can provide.

At The Chiltern School we are committed to working closely and collaboratively with parents and carers in order to:

To support the above we have a number of communication channels to choose from:

Family Forum

This is an active working group which meets termly to represent the voice of Parents and Carers and looks to share ideas as well as providing opportunities to comment on new initiatives throughout the school.

Parent/Carer Evenings

There are two opportunities each year where parents and carers are invited to discuss with the class teacher their child’s progress and to set future targets. We encourage the children to attend these evening so they can share their school work and celebrate their achievements.

Parent and Carer Outreach

A workshop is held termly on school site by our working partners to offer support and advice.

Home School Communication

There are opportunities on a daily basis to communicate directly with school these include Class dojo, Phone, Text and Email.


The newsletter communicates school life, events and celebrating student achievements. An electronic version is available half termly and accessible via the schools website. Parents can request a hard copy via the school office.

“The school is a happy place where pupils enjoy learning and make good progress”.
