We strongly believe that the children can only achieve their best from their time here at Preston School, if there is a strong and supportive partnership between school and parent. There are two formal parent teacher consultations during the year. Parents will also receive a written annual report at the end of the academic year. An Open Day is held in the latter half of the Summer Term, where parents are invited to visit the school at work.
The school office is the first point of contact for all general enquiries. The child's class teacher will handle any queries relating specifically to learning, and will be pleased to meet with you after school - preferably by prior appointment made through the school office. Where concerns cannot be addressed through these channels, the Head Teacher is happy to assist – again, by prior appointment.
FOPS is the Friends of Preston School parent association. We work closely with the school to raise funds for all the little ‘extras’ that the school budget doesn’t always allow for.
All parents/carers automatically become members of FOPS when they have a child at the school.
We have regular meetings, usually monthly, to organise events for fundraising or to discuss areas where the funds could be used.
FOPS is a registered charity, so please feel free to obtain a Gift Aid form to cover any donation you may give to us, even something as small as buying a burger at the annual school fete! Registered charity number 1140107. Link to download Gift Aid form is below. It’s simple, just tick the 3rd box and complete the donor details and hand in at the school office. This is available to all UK taxpayers, even those paying tax on pensions etc.
We are always looking for new faces at the meetings and new ideas or suggestions. Please either post at our facebook page, come to a meeting or ask around in the playground for other active members.
All help, donations and time spent participating goes directly to improving the equipment, surroundings or range of activities the children can use in school.
