At Avondale, we consider communication between home and school as an essential part of the learning process. We like to keep you up to date with the latest news and reports from classes on our website. Children also present their learning in Termly assemblies. Additionally, we send Termly newsletters home that accompany invoices, as well as correspondence throughout each term, advertising forthcoming events. More recently, the paper trail has become quite exhaustive, so we aim to e-mail correspondence going forward wherever possible. In addition to the Termly calendar, weekly events are communicated on the noticeboard at the entrance to the school. This noticeboard also communicates cancellations to clubs and changes in timings. Wherever possible, we text parents to communicate short- notice events and changes to programmes.
In regards your child's progress, we have a Parents Evening mid way through the Autumn and Summer Terms. A concise report detailing progress in the core subject areas goes home midway through the academic year and there is a more detailed report that goes home on the penultimate day of the year. Presentation Day gives a full review on the events of the year and is an opportunity to recognise success across the school as a whole.
Our Parents Association also communicates regularly with parents. There are a number of social events organised each term that help bring the school community together whilst raising funds for future school projects.
Avondale has always valued charitable work incredibly highly. Each year the student council are instrumental in organising fundraising events that not only draw the school community together, but further extend the school’s ethos of giving to the less fortunate.
