We believe it is important that the academy has strong links with the community and that parents should be involved in the education of their children for the benefit of both parent and child.
In the Autumn and Spring Term’s parents are invited to meet their child’s class teacher to discuss progress which is followed up with a short written progress report at the end of term. A final progress report is issued at the end of the Summer Term with an opportunity to follow it up with a face to face discussion if required.
Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA)
Warboys Primary Academy has a very active Parent, Teacher & Friends Association. All the parents and staff are automatically members of the PTFA and all work is done on a voluntary basis. Our main objective is to raise money for the academy, which we do via various events. There are lots of events held throughout the year which you will hear about in the form of Newsletters, posters around the academy and village and flyers in the children’s book bags. The funds raised go to pay for lots of different things all focused around increasing the academy resources. There is an AGM in September when elections for the committee take place. Everyone who wishes to help at any level is welcome.
Volunteers are always welcome both for PTFA events and to help in tyhe academy and on academy outings. If you are interested in assisting a teacher in some way, e.g. preparing booklets, cutting card, repairing books, supervising cooking, needlecraft etc. please contact the office.
You will appreciate the high value we place on safe guarding our children, therefore all adults working with children, in whatever capacity, (including volunteers) will be asked to complete a CRB check (Criminal Records Bureau), prior to working in the academy. We appreciate parental help on academy visits too but cannot guarantee that a parent will be able to accompany his or her child.
Car Parking and Travelling to the Academy
We should like parents to encourage their children to walk or bike to the academy. However we realise that some parents have no choice but to drive and we would ask that you park sensibly around the local area.
This 'Cars Near School' leaflet, from Cambridgeshire County Council, offers some good advice.
