  • Clear communication about what their child will be learning over the coming half term or term
  • Clear communication about what their child has learned through the home school diary and reports, including photos to ‘paint a picture’ of life at school
  • Face to face meetings as often as practical
  • Opportunities to discuss their child through termly parents’ evenings, an annual review and as often as necessary informally through phone calls
