Parents as Partners

At Moorcroft Wood we value the partnerships with parents/carers and hope to build positive relationships throughout your child’s time with us.  We really value the massive contribution that an effective partnership with parents/carers and school can make to a child’s development, well-being and education. 

We look forward to building positive relationships and working effectively with parents and carers by,


  • offering parents/carers the opportunity to talk to the class teacher before their child starts Nursery
  • arranging to visit parents/carers of children new to Moorcroft Wood in their own homes
  • inviting parents/carers/children to spend time with the class teacher and support staff in Nursery prior to starting school
  • taking parents/carers on a brief tour of the school as part of an induction meeting
  • encouraging parents/carers to share any concerns with school staff
  • sharing any concerns that school staff may have about a child with their parents/carers
  • arranging activities throughout the year where parents/carers are invited in to school to work with their children for example the Easter Bonnet making workshop in the spring term
  • handing out reports at the end of each half term
  • providing a copy of your child’s learning journey at the end of each term
  • inviting you to attend workshops to discuss the teaching of phonics in school and sharing tips about how this can be supported at home
  • providing regular updates and sharing information on the Nursery webpage about what children are doing and how their learning can be supported
  • inviting parents/carers to take part in parent's evenings/consultations
  • using the Class Dojo system as a means of contacting school staff easily and quickly
  • having a dedicated email address for parents to use



Please be aware that due to the current Covid 19 situation we may not have been able to do some of the above in the usual way, but we will endeavour to do our best.
