Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School is an excellent school the children are happy and thriving. The dedication and hard work from the entire school team is outstanding and clear to see. I am extremely happy with Daniel's progress since starting at the Pre-School. He seems to have made a lovely group of friends and enjoys coming in every day. I can't wait to see him progress further. Presence of Teachers and caretakers at pick up and drop off really help you feel safe. The well-being of the pupils is outstanding. They have gone above and beyond to make sure my children have felt safe at school. My child is happy to come to school, the staff are visible and approachable. It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Highly visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. Supportive school for both parents and children. As parents we feel really proud that our son comes to such a great school, which we knew was fabulous whether OFSTED told us or not!

Parent Consultation Meetings

Dates for 2021-2022

 

March 2022:

 

 

We are really looking forward to our second Parents Evening of the academic year. After such positive feedback from the first Parents Evening in October, we will continue to hold virtual meetings using SchoolCloud. The virtual parents evening will NOT be in school or over the phone but accessed via a video link. If you do not have access to a mobile phone, computer or tablet, please call the school office.

 

You will be able to book a slot with your child’s class teacher via a text which will be sent to you on Wednesday 2nd March at 9am and slots will then be open until 7pm the night before the Parent Consultation for you to book.

 

You will need to click on the link in the email confirmation in order to join the meeting.

 

Each year group will hold their consultations over one afternoon and evening during the week beginning the 14th March 2022 with the exception of year R who will be having morning and afterschool appointments. The days can be found below:

If you wish to discuss your child’s Special Educational Need further after your Parent Consultation slot, please let the class teacher know and they will pass this on to the SEN department who will be in touch.

 

There will be an opportunity during the week beginning 7th March for you to come into your child’s class to see their books before the Parents Evening appointment the following week.

 

There is an option for you to leave a message for the class teacher prior to the meeting if there is something you wish us to particularly address. Each appointment will be 9 minutes long and there will be a coloured countdown above the screen to show you how long you have left for your appointment.

 

Please note, that if you miss your appointment, we are unable to offer an alternative unless there were exceptional circumstances e.g. frontline NHS workers, medical emergency. It is best to log on a few minutes early. You will be able to log on to your appointment via the email confirmation.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

 

October 2021:

 

Year R families:

 

We are really looking forward to your first Parents Evening of the academic year. We firmly believe in building a strong partnership between home and school and therefore, after the success of our telephone consultations last year and having asked our parents about virtual Parent Consultations compared to face to face sessions, we have decided to try a new system which gives us the best of both systems using a system called SchoolCloud.

 

You will be able to book a slot with your child’s class teacher via a text which will be sent to you on Thursday 21st October at 9am and slots will then be open until 7pm on Tuesday 2nd November.

 

The virtual Parents Evening for year R will be on Wednesday 3rd November from 9.30am – 11.30am and 3.30pm – 7.00pm.

 

When your appointments are due to begin, you will need to click on the email link to make the online connection. This can be done from a smartphone or laptop/desktop. If you are having trouble connecting please see the information below. If you do not have access to a smartphone or laptop/desktop, please contact the school office.

Teachers will have their cameras on and we would appreciate being able to see you too so that we can discuss face to face how your child has settled into life in year R and the progress they are making. There is an option for you to leave a message for the class teacher prior to the meeting if there is something you wish us to particularly address. Please note, due to SchoolCloud being an automated system it is not possible to call you back if you miss your appointment. It is best to log on a few minutes early.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

 

Parent Consultations for years 1-6

 

These will be held during the week beginning Monday 15th November (please see dates below). A link will be sent to you in Term 2 to allow you to sign up for a slot.

Dates for 2020-2021

 

 

The next parent consultation meeting will be held during the week beginning the 22nd March. It will be through a pre-arranged phone call in the same way as last time. Details of the booking arrangements will be released shortly.

 

 

We use an online booking system for the Parent Consultation Evening.  It reduces the administration for the school and help parents on the odd occasion that children forget to bring letters home or hand in completed slips.  It enable parents to book all brothers/sisters at the same time so that, subject to availability,  appointments are closer together. 

 

Invites are sent as a text to the first mobile number so keeping your numbers up to date is vital.  As ever, we ask that, unless there are exceptional circumstances, separated parents attend together.  With the notice we give, we do not offer alternative appointments unless there are exceptional circumstances (both parents rostered in emergency services, frontline NHS etc.)

 

 

 

 

 

Dear parents and carers


Parents and Carers Consultation Evening (PCCE)


As you know, we publish key events for our school as early in the year as possible on both the website and in newsletters. We hope that this early notification helps you in planning ahead for your ten-minute appointment because we understand that you have work and family commitments to juggle! Staff spend a lot of time preparing for these meetings and they look forward to sharing your child’s progress and next steps.  Children also like being able to share their work with you and, when you attend, it shows them that you value their learning.


We are obviously happy to re-schedule where there is absolutely no possibility of attending.  This would include anyone scheduled to work for Kent Fire & Rescue, front line NHS staff such as nurses; it does not include auxiliary health care staff or administrative staff.  It is not reasonable to expect staff to accommodate additional appointments for other reasons such as ‘I forgot/ my child didn’t remind me/the time wasn’t convenient'. 


We would also respectfully ask that parents who are separated book one joint appointment.  This ensures that the same information is shared at the same time and from a practical point of view, with a fixed number of appointments available, everyone can be accommodated. Please speak in confidence to me if you feel there are additional circumstances which make this too difficult.

 

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter - it is much appreciated.

 

Ms Whichcord

Head Teacher
