Communication with parents

At Yarlside Academy we pride ourselves on our excellent formal and informal communication with parents. We believe that a strong partnership with parents is vital to ensure the most effective education for our children.

We operate an open door policy where parents are welcome to come in for whatever reason (if a parent wishes to speak at length with a teacher or the Head, then an appointment would be necessary).

Regular monthly newsletters are sent home and are available in the school, these detail all school news/information including events and academic news. Half-termly class newsletters are also sent home from the class teacher with relevant class information. The school website and social media is regularly updated with relevant information and news feeds. Parents are also given class teacher email contacts.

Parents are invited into school in the Autumn and Spring terms to discuss their child’s progress with the class teacher.

Detailed annual reports on individual children are sent home towards the end of the Summer Term.
