Parents / Carers

 Parents are their children's first teachers

We pride ourselves in the holistic approach we take to our pupils' development and the importance we place on home/school collaboration.  This has resulted in excellent relationships with our parents/carers.

We regularly hold open mornings and afternoons and our good partnership is a strength of the school.  The views of parents are often sought to ensure we are doing the best we can.

 "I wanted to say a huge thank you for hosting such a lovely iftar event today. This was such a thoughtful action by Phoenix Infants, and I love that it showed my son that his school community can come together to celebrate our beautiful month of Ramadan. Your event has added a layer to the spiritual upbringing I am trying to get him to benefit from, and we really enjoyed how all our different cultures came together for a fun evening! Adam didn't want to leave!"

Newsletters are sent to parents fortnightly on Fridays. 

We have both an email service and Class Dojo which are very effective forms of communication between home and school.  Parents receive Class Dojo reminders of events in school and in emergency situations such as a school trip being delayed by traffic we are able to send texts to parents’ mobile phones.

SLT are always available at the start and end of day on the gates for parents to speak with. 


We ask that parents adhere closely to the school’s uniform as set out clearly and comprehensively in the uniform policy. It is for the children to look smart; TOGETHER, but also for health and safety and to safeguard the children, which is especially important when on Educational Visits etc. which are a core element of our curriculum offer.  Uniform is available from School Days Direct and My Clothing.

Children’s educational visits are arranged regularly for all year groups. It is the policy of the Trustees to ask parents to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of trips. However, parents are asked to understand that trips cannot go ahead if parents are unwilling to support them. In the event of financial difficulty, parents are asked to contact the Principal to discuss the situation.
