Here at Honley School Out of School Club we believe in building strong partnerships and links with all.
As a parent/carer you are your child's first educator and know your child the best, this is why we work closely with yourselves to find out what your child likes/dislikes, how to comfort them if upset and share activities and ideas to support your child's developmental journey.
We have a range of ways we encourage parent partnership at Honley School Out of School Club, these vary from:
- Parent input/observation sheets
- Open events to share how your child is doing in the club
- Have your say forms
- Celebrating achievement/WOW moments
- Summer and Christmas Fayre
- Termly feedback sheets
We strongly believe that children are leaders of their own learning and by gathering their thoughts and ideas they will become more engaged in what they are doing and will take on an ownership over their opportunities. We will gather children's thoughts and ideas in the following ways:
- Daily general conversations.
- Completing child consultation forms.
- Asking the children to complete 'child input sheets' which will feed into the weekly planning.
- Gathering their thoughts and ideas for developing the breakfast and tea menu.
- Termly feedback sheets.
- Out of School Club Forum.
- Optional scrap books where children can write and draw about the experiences and activities they have joined in with and what they would like to do next.
Links throughout the School
We feel it is important for us to know about your child's school day and how they are progressing within the school, along with finding out about what your child is learning to support them further with their learning and development. Therefore, we will speak on a regular basis with your child's class teacher to find out this information. This information is gathered on the basis to support your child's learning and development during their time with us.
