Communication

Ensuring that you know what St Martin’s C of E School is all about is very important to us. We make regular updates to our Facebook page sharing the life of our school. We produce a weekly newsletter (these can found under the Newsletters tab).

Each term we hold parent evenings when you can book an appointment to meet with your child’s class teacher and discuss their learning, attainment and progress. We hold Meet the Teacher sessions at the start of each term to keep you up to date with what exciting learning is planned for your child’s class!

Every other Thursday we run an open classroom afternoon in KS1, Reception and Nursery so you can come in, read with your child and look at their books.

We also hold a range of events throughout the year that involve parents. Last year parents from across the school helped us to build a community garden! We also have an active PTA. If you would like to join the PTA please contact rhodgetts@stbarnabasmat.com and keep an eye on the calendar and Facebook feed for upcoming events.

We use the MYEd app which gives you information about your student and school direct to your phone. The app is used for communicating important messages to parents/carers and parents/carers can also use it to send messages to the school about absences etc.

You can also keep up to date with your child’s attendance and let the school know if there is anything you are concerned about.
