Parents

Introduction for Parents

We always look forward to meeting parents and guardians and those families who are looking to join Thamesmead School.

At the start of each academic year parents are invited to an Information Evening which will give details about the year that your child is about to commence. It will give you details about how we can work together to ensure that your child progresses well.  Further information about these can be found in the Year Group pages of the website.

We know that working closely with parents is key to ensuring that your children make good progress. Home-School expectations are agreed between parents, students and staff when you join Thamesmead School.

We encourage regular communication with us and individual progress information is available online via our Parent Portal.  Students can access our VLE (Frog) from home enabling parents to take an active role in learning.

In line with our Home-School expectations we ask parents/guardians to help and support by:

  • Helping students achieve high standards of behaviour and attendance
  • Encouraging students to always try their best and be ready for learning each day
  • Maintaining close contacts with school, using the student planner as a means of communication
  • Attending Parents’ Progress Meetings and keep informed through Thamesmead Talk and the school website
  • Participating in the Parents Teachers Association, email: thamesmeadpta@hotmail.co.uk

The Surrey CC website has comprehensive information about supporting your child through all stages of their education including reading, homework, exam stress and choosing the next step.  Follow this link for more information
