Frizington Community Primary School

People Matter

Parent Zone

Our School is a warm and friendly inviting place where everyone is welcome. We believe that Frizington Community Primary School is a vital part of the community and that parents, grandparents, friends and other members of the community are always more than welcome in School. We operate a flexible start to our day between 8:50 and 9:00 a.m. where you can come into School and make sure your child is settled and help them with their initial morning activity. We also keep parents as well informed as possible concerning all aspects of their child's life at School. We feel that children are happiest at School (and so are able to work to their best ability) when they are confident of a partnership between home and School. Parents and members of the community work with the School in a variety of ways including:

  • Meeting the reception class teachers who visit each child at home prior to them starting School.

  • Attending parents’ evenings and meetings held every term.

  • Discussing your child’s annual report with teachers.

  • Joining us for celebrations and attending assemblies.

  • of ‘special occasions’, such as Christmas and Easter.

  • Working alongside staff and children in the classroom, sharing skills in areas such as cooking, information technology, hearing children read.

  • Attending meetings at School to gain information about curriculum changes and initiatives.

  • Learning alongside your child by attending one of our family learning courses or our curriculum days – ‘Maths Games Day’.

  • Helping with fund raising through events such as Book Fayres or Disco’s; Helping with transport to matches, outings and visits.

  • Collecting useful materials, cartons, newspapers, boxes etc.

  • Working as part of our parents group “FUNds4Us”.

  • Providing crèche facilities whenever possible for events such as school plays, family learning etc.

We believe that parental support at home is vital to helping your child’s education. For example, much emphasis is placed on reading and encouraging a love of books, with a wide range of reading material available for the children to take home each night. Talking with and listening to your child is invaluable and helps to promote a positive approach to our school and the work we do. It is so important to read with and to your child at all ages. We have plenty of information about hearing children read and fun things for you to do at home with your child. Children are never too old!
