Learning Consultations enable you, your child and the class teacher to discuss your child's learning within the curriculum; this constitutes learning in all subjects, and particularly in Writing, Reading and Maths.
We aim for children to develop as independent learners, to learn to take responsibility for their learning and to develop positive attitudes and behaviours for learning. This is more successfully achieved when a constructive partnership between teacher, parent and pupil is forged, of which Learning Consultations are an important part. Therefore, we encourage you to take the opportunity to have your child present during the Learning Consultation. The most positive impact we can have on children is by involving them in the whole learning process at every stage, and that requires their involvement in discussions about their learning and what they need to do next to improve.
Learning Consultations are a valuable opportunity for professional dialogue between teacher, parent and child where, in partnership, we can address the following areas:
- Learning targets in Maths, Reading and Writing
- Personal and social development and behaviour
- Attitude, application to work across the curriculum and effort
- Effort, strengths and areas for improvement
- Home Learning
- Attendance and lateness
- What you can do to help at home
All Learning Consultations will take place in your child’s class and in order to fit all appointments in, we must limit the time with the teacher to 10 minutes per child. If a longer discussion is necessary, please contact the class teacher to arrange an appointment at another time. Please also be aware that appointments are in ten minute slots and we wish to avoid running over time as this has an impact on the parents who have appointments after your own.
There will also be an opportunity to book an appointment with our Sendco, Miss Carne, for those pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. If your child receives this support, Miss Carne’s name will show next to their class teacher in the booking form and this will allow you to book a time slot with her.
