Contact between home and school is an important part of your child's education. We are always pleased to discuss problems relating to your children. The Headteacher will always try to be available, especially if the matter is urgent, but please telephone the office to make an appointment before coming in to school.
Family is a very important part of life at Wenlock School. Parents and carers are encouraged to come into school and help with reading and other classroom activities, accompany children on school trips and support our Friends of Wenlock Parents Association.
Parents and Carers also play an important part in helping our children celebrate the vast array of different cultures which are represented at our school and are regularly invited to take part in our assemblies and school events.
We see school as an extension of the children's own families as well as being a family in our own right, offering security, stimulation and a spring-board to try out new things.
This agreement outlines the commitments from school, pupils and families which will ensure an effective and supportive partnership.

Good communiation between home and school is a vital part of our partnership.
This communication book should be kept in the pupil's bag and brought to school from home, and back again everyday.
We ask that you check it daily and that your child informs the teacher of any messages sent from home.
Each week the children are set homework. The amount varies from year group to suit the age of the children.
All children will be set a weekly Learning Log challenge, which goes home on a Friday and is due back into school by the following Wednesday. Class teachers will also set weekly spellings for the children to learn, ready for a weekly spelling test.
Children should also be reading at home each day to an adult. It is important that the children practice and learn their times tables too.
Set aside 10 to 15 minutes each day to read with your child. It will make all the difference!
Make reading an enjoyable and positive experience:
