School is a partnership between child – teacher – parents, and to ensure that the partnership is effective, communication needs to be regular and purposeful. Parents and others with an interest in the school will receive regular newsletters and texts about the happenings in school, and we are always ready to receive suggestions concerning the things we should write to you about.
When your child joins Moorfield as well as the school website you will receive access to our Class Dojo. In addition, we hold Parents Meetings during the year when teachers and parents can discuss progress.
Parents are always welcome to make an appointment to see the Senior Leadership Team or the class teacher. They can do this through the School Office (0161 483 4521).
