Child Progress Update Information

There are many opportunities during the school year for formal and informal contact between parents and teachers. Parents evenings are held three times a year, where parents can visit the school to see their child’s working environment, as well as see their work. These are opportunities to discuss formally your child’s progress with their class teacher.

Parents who wish to discuss their child’s progress at other times should make an appointment with the teacher or teachers concerned. This will generally be before or after school.

The school carries out regular assessments of all pupils, in accordance with the school’s assessment policy.

Towards the end of the school year, parents receive a written report. This is based on the teachers assessment of the child’s work during the year.

At the end of the each key stage, year two and year six children will also be given an assessment in English, Mathematics and science against National Curriculum expectations.

Parents are invited to come and share in the celebration of the children’s work at special assemblies.

Throughout your child’s time at Ty Sign Primary School, you will have the opportunity to see a Harvest Service, St David’s Day Celebration, Christmas Plays  and the Leaver’s Assembly. The local minister – The Rev. Marc Owen – visits the school, as well as the Salvation Army and various other charities to conduct Collective Worship. All of these occasions do much to enhance the life of the school.
