Good communications are essential to support learning, teaching and administration. We wish to be open, honest, friendly and accessible to parents. The school communicates with home using the following methods:
Whole school letters
Surveys and meetings to share views
Where possible, we communicate electronically. We encourage parents to keep up to date with children’s progress by staying involved with homework, meeting with the teacher for advice and consultation, and discussing children’s learning.
In June, following the pupil reports, there is a parents’ evening to discuss your child’s progress – and we actively encourage parents to meet with teachers throughout the year to discuss educational provision. Appointments can be made to give parents a longer length of time to meet with the class teacher than is possible at a parents’ evening.
Parents can communicate with the school in the following ways:
Letter or telephone
Email (please be aware the information you send may not be secure)
Note in your child’s homework bag
Parents may call in at the school office to pass on information or drop off items. The office is manned by Mrs Anderson on Monday – Thursday mornings.
Teachers are available most days by appointment. An appointment or contact will be made as soon as possible. Mrs Pirie can be contacted via the school office for the remainder of the week and will respond as soon as possible to urgent emails and messages.
Parents at Daviot can access a wealth of information about the school on our blog – which is updated regularly. They can also follow us on Twitter and become a friend of Daviot on Facebook.
