Communication with Parents
Class Dojo is the main communication method for Hunnyhill. Parents can private message teachers as well as see the class feed and main school feed where events and important information is posted. Alternatively, please contact the school office via phone or email to make an appointment to see the class teacher.
There will be several opportunities during the school year when you will have the opportunity to come and see how your children learn and also for informal information sessions on a variety of subjects. Information of this will be given through ClassDojo.
We hold 3 parents meetings a year, with appointments available in the early evening. You will also receive a written report twice a year, one mid-year and one end of year. In addition to progress reports, we send termly “traffic light” letters detailing your child’s current school percentage attendance.
Celebration Assemblies are held on Fridays at 2.20pm, where parents, carers and guests are invited to see the children recognised for their achievements in and out of school. Parent/carers will be informed via class dojo if their child is taking part.
