At Crofton Downs Primary School we have an open door policy and welcome parents to visit teachers and/or the Principal to discuss any details concerning their children or the school.

For teaching staff it is appreciated if an appointment can be made if the request is more than a quick question and answer.

We formally report to parents in the following ways:


We have a meet the teacher evening where all of the classroom parents can meet up and where the teacher will outline the programme and routines they intend to put in place.  This is followed by a question and answer time.


Parent/Teacher Conferences.  Teachers will report the results of initial testing and provide feedback about how your child is settling into the class.


Parent/Teacher Conferences. New information about your child's learning will be shared with parents and general discussion about their learning/social progression.

Throughout the year:

We write our report comments during each of the terms and these are available using our online reporting system called Linc-ed.  Teachers will write comments, share examples of work and assessment results using this system and will email you when new comments are published.  We aim to report several times per term on different curriculum areas, including general comments.

        We report on the National Standards suing this online tool twice per year.

        A short Frequently Asked Questions section might be useful to you and you can find         this by clicking HERE.
