Home / School links 


We offer an open door policy for general enquiries with parents.  If there is something you would like to discuss with the class teacher or headteacher, it is often better to call and make an appointment for a meeting to ensure you get the time that you need.


Every child has a home/school link book that parents can use to inform staff about any issues or questions that they might have.  We make it a policy to look at these daily so your comments should not be missed.

Text messaging service


The school has a text messaging service which is used to primarily as a quick / urgent message service to parents. Since it's launch earlier in 2015 it has been very popular with the school community.  If you would like to be added to the text service, please contact the school office.


Twitter account 


For those of you on twitter, the school has it's own account @clapham_primary where we tweet about school news and events.  Please do follow us!   


Parent Consultations 


Because of the nature of our school, we see most parents on a daily basis but we do offer two parent consultation evenings per school year.  The Autumn Term session is a chance for teachers and parents to discuss transition, and targets based on the previous term.  The Spring Term session is designed to review progress, look at standards in work and end of year expectations. A yearly report is issued that summarises progress, attainment and effort in all curriculum subjects.
