A newsletter is distributed to parents every term.
Parent Open Days
Parent and teacher conferences are held 3 times a year on an individual basis. Parents are invited to discuss their child’s progress at an evening arranged at the end of each term. Parents will receive a written report about their child’s progress at the end of the academic year. General open days are held once a term for existing and prospective parents to look around the school and to view the children’s work which is displayed for all to admire. We operate an open door policy, where parents can discuss any concerns with their class teacher, at a mutually agreeable time.
We welcome parent participation during the school year as well as during our specialised weekly themes held in the holiday school camps. If you have a skill that you would like to share with the school, please let us know e.g. storytelling, music, art, dance, gardening, sports, research etc. Parents can also contribute to the school newsletter. There are many events scheduled throughout the year when parents, families, siblings and their children can enjoy social occasions. We also have an active parent group called Friends of Norfolk Lodge.
Uniform can be purchased from the Norfolk Lodge School office. Please note that uniform needs to be paid for at the time it is collected.
Every early years provision is the subject of an OFSTED report which reflects the quality of teaching, partnership with parents, curriculum planning and quality of care. OFSTED reports are accessible through the Internet. Alternatively, you may read a copy of our OFSTED report when you visit us.
We are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance (UK), Montessori Education U.K. and Montessori Schools Association.
Employer’s Nursery Vouchers
We do accept employer’s nursery vouchers. School fees should always be paid when they are due. If nursery vouchers are only available after the due date we ask that the fees are paid in full when they are due. We will then refund the nursery vouchers value to you as we receive it. The School Secretary can advise you on this.
