Visitors coming to our school comment on the caring ethos of our school and the positive relationships that exist between staff and pupils. We believe that we can only provide the very best education for our pupils through working in true partnership with our parents and believe that this communication is a two-way process that can bring real benefits to the children. We have a number of different ways that we communicate with parents, including weekly newsletter, emails, termly reports and face to face meetings. We also have teaching staff available in the playground each day to have a quick chat and a commitment to offer an appointment quickly if an issue arises that needs more discussion.
We are an open school; class teachers are approachable and they welcome regular informal dialogue about any aspect of learning. There are formal parents evenings in the Autumn and Spring Terms, progress meetings, class assemblies and a written report at the end of the summer term.
We are fortunate enough to have a tremendous amount of parental support and interest.
Parents are also welcomed to our Friday Celebrations and Collective Worship that take place in the parish Church opposite the school from approx. 9am.
Veryan Parent and Friends Association (PFA)
The PFA has been extremely successful in fundraising for our school. The PFA organises a range of events for the children and families. They meet each term to discuss future fundraising events and the purchase of equipment for the school.
As a parent at Veryan C of E School, you are automatically a member of our Parent and Friends Association. The aim of this group is to support the work of the school, raise money for additional resources for the pupils and to have fun at the same time!
Please do come along to the next meeting that you see advertised in the school newsletter and on the school noticeboard inside the playground, share your ideas and get to know us all.
