Parents/carers know their children better than anyone and Ifield values the strong partnerships we have with the families of our pupils.
We keep in regular contact via the telephone and by using home/school journals, regular newsletters and news stories posted on the website. Ifield School also has a supportive and enthusiastic PTFA which meets regularly.
We recognise and value the importance of effective and positive communication. This is essential to ensure parents and carers are informed of their child’s experiences and development when at school, especially when our pupils have challenges communicating directly themselves. We recognise that with so many of our pupils arriving at school via Local Authority transport that this can create a barrier to informal communications taking place between home and school.
