Sharing Information

 

School Website and Social Media

We encourage all our parents to follow us on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and YouTube). We send posts on a daily basis with links to photos, letters and key information on our school website. Our website is also home to our weekly newsletters and a half-termly
‘Hamstel Herald’ to celebrate the fantastic opportunities we provide for our children as well as some of their achievements and work.

 

Newsletters and Hamstel Heralds

Our weekly newsletters and Hamstel Heralds are designed to be viewed in colour and are only sent in paper form if requested.

The majority of our parents choose to view these via our website and can opt to receive notifications on Twitter or Facebook.

You can also request to have these sent to you in PDF format via email. 

 

School Events

We use our newsletters and social media posts to notify you about key dates for your diary.
Did you know you can also use the calendar on our website to stay up-to-date?

You can also subscribe to the calendar, and sync the events to the calendar on your mobile phone, by following the instructions below it.

Raising Concerns Procedure

 

Learning Conversations

 

 

 

Learning Conversations take place in the autumn term (usually October) to see how your child is settling into his/her new class and in the spring term (usually February) to discuss progress. Parents are asked to meet with their child to look at his/her work before the meeting with the teacher. This meeting takes place with the child present to allow everyone to contribute to the discussion and share responsibility for the child achieving his/her potential. The last parents' evening takes place in the summer term (usually July) when the children are encouraged to share their work with parents/carers.
