Parent Partnership

Developing strength in parent partnership.

Here at Half Acres Primary Academy, we believe that parents / carers and staff working together in partnership is essential to a child’s individual needs being fully met. These are some of the ways in which we work with parents and carers:

Open Door Policy

At Half Acres, we promote an open door policy to encourage parents and carers to be involved within the school community.

In addition to consultation evenings, we promote positive relationships and communication between school staff and parents / carers.  Staff are always present on the doors at drop off and pick up times and we are available to talk to parents / carers either over the phone or face to face at pre-arranged times.

In order to maintain the smooth timings of the school day, we ask that parents/carers contact the school office on 01977 802325 or via email to ha-enquiries@ipmat.co.uk to request a call back or an appointment with your child’s class teacher.

Inspire Events

Each year at Half Acres Primary Academy, Inspire events are held in every year group. These have proved to be a huge success with staff, children and families thoroughly enjoying them.

Teachers plan the Inspire events around the arts / sciences / sports and wider curriculum to engage children in all subjects taught in school.

Events are planned in advance and are shared on our academy newsletter with the dates for your diary.

Parent Consultation Meetings

Consultation meetings are held in the autumn and spring term at Half Acres Primary Academy. Meetings are a great opportunity for class teachers to share information about how your child is progressing at school, and their development and targets in order to achieve their full potential.

We strongly encourage all parents/carers to attend these meetings in order to raise the importance of schooling to children and to allow parents/carers to understand how to best support their own child / children whilst at home.

Teachers send out individual school reports for each child in the summer term ready for the children to transition to their next stage of education.

Wakefield Families Together

Wakefield Families Together

Wakefield Families Together brings services together, so that it’s easier for you to find and access the support you need, at the earliest opportunity.

We want children, young people, and families to tell us they are happy, healthy, and safe. Wakefield Families Together are about working on your behalf so that if you have a concern about your child or family member, you only need to have one conversation with us, and we can direct you to the right support. You can access this support through your child’s school, family hub, or in the local community.

To help us localise how we work with families across the Wakefield district, we have grouped our teams and partner organisations into six community ‘cluster’ areas, with nine family hubs and three Youth Hubs. You can find your local Family Hub or Youth on the Wakefield Families Together website here: Family Hubs – Wakefield Families Together and here: Youth Hubs – Wakefield Families Together

Thank you for your ongoing support!

Should you wish to find out any further information about our academy or curriculum, please speak to your child’s class teacher, who will be happy to discuss this with you.
