Parents are welcomed into the school. St. Patrick’s School recognises the important role that parents play in the education of their children. We see the educational experience as a partnership between home and the school. Parents are encouraged to become involved in our active PFA ( Parents and Friends of St. Patrick’s Association ). We also encourage parents to attend meetings, assemblies, Masses, and other school events and to come into the classrooms as reading volunteers. Newsletters and other letters are sent out regularly to keep parents informed. The notice boards and white boards in the playgrounds also provide up to date information. Our Home – School Agreement is our shared commitment to working together.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CURRICULUM
If parents have any concerns about their child’s education parents should speak to their child’s class teacher in the first instance, if there are still unanswered questions discuss these with the child's phase leader.
Most problems are sorted out at this stage, but if parents are not satisfied they should make an appointment to see the Head of School or the Executive Headteacher.
In the unlikely event that a solution cannot be found then parents can approach the Governing Body.
A copy of the full Complaints Procedure is available on request from the school office.
