Home / School Communication

At West Moors Middle School we value the importance of communicating with parents and carers as

effective home-school communication can make children feel more confident and valued in their setting, which can improve attendance.

It can also help children to foster a love of learning, which can be further enhanced by support from both their parents/ carers and teachers. We ensure effective communication, using a range of approaches, ensuring consistency so parents and carers remain up-to-date with school events and their child’s education.

  • ‘Meet the Teacher’ sessions:
Meet the Teacher sessions are held at the beginning of the Autumn Term in each academic year.
