Parkgate Infants and Nursery discourages parents from taking holidays during term time.
The school will not authorise holidays in term time unless there are exceptional circumstances when you would need to gain permission from the headteacher.
School Closure Procedure
In the event of the school being closed, you will receive an email via Arbor. Please ensure all parents are registered on our Arbor app.
We use the Arbor app to send letters and alerts to parents/carers. The app is also used for booking Parkgate Pirates wraparound care sessions.
In EYFS (Nursery and Reception) we use the Tapestry app to share learning with parents.
Observations of your child’s learning in the classroom are recorded on Tapestry and shared regularly with you so that you are kept informed of the learning taking place. Observations include photographs, written commentary and sometimes videos. Parents are invited to share their own observations from home, in order that we are able to build a full picture of your child’s development in partnership with parents.
Home learning activities, such as phonics sheets to practice new sounds as they are taught, are also shared with parents via the Tapestry app.
Home learning is shared via the Seesaw class app.
Seesaw allows you and your child to view the home learning activities each week and respond to them with photographs, audio or video submissions. The class teacher is able to give feedback on the work submitted directly via the app to support the home school partnership.
