As a school we value the importance in strengthening partnerships between parents/carers and professionals.

In Acorn Class we encourage ‘WOW’ moments in order to celebrate children’s home achievements.  We are very keen for parents to become involved in these as we recognise the importance in children connecting what they learn at school to their home and community.

We ask parents to share with us children’s ‘WOW’ moments. If your child says or does anything at home that to you, demonstrates a ‘WOW’ moment of learning, then we encourage you to write it down on a ‘WOW’ slip (WOW home slips), cut it out and send it back into school so we can celebrate them in group time and display them on our ‘WOW’ board. If you would like to send in photos to support the ‘WOW’ moment you are more than welcome to do that too!
