Events at Wentworth
We place great importance on extending our learning to our families and throughout the year there are opportunities for the children to invite their families to share in the learning experiences here at Wentworth. The events are held at either the start of the day commencing at 8:30am or the end of the day in line with school collection times, the sessions are well attended and enjoyed by both children and adults; with adults stating "The times are great for working parents".
Parent Consultation Sessions
In addition to the daily contact we have with families we provide formal consultation sessions where the class teacher will share information with parents about how their child is progressing academically, socially and emotionally. This is an opportunity to share both achievements and next steps in ensuring that together we meet the needs of our children. This is also an opportunity for parents to share their thoughts and ideas on life at Wentworth. Please take time to click on the link below and explore the recent feedback and responses.

Parent Learning Sessions
Throughout the year the staff and children will share with their families ways in which we deliver areas of the curriculum, this provides an opportunity to support home learning in an engaging way. We currently offer parent learning sessions to support Spelling, Phonics, Maths and Writing. We have received very positive comments about our sessions which are always appreciated.

Fabulous Finish Exhibitions
Each theme is celebrated through a Fabulous Finish Exhibition where the children get to share the learning that has taken place around their theme, it is an opportunity for children to share the work they have completed in both core and foundation subjects driven by the chosen theme text. This is another session that is well received by both adults and children.
