Communication and School Spider

How we keep in touch with you

Our school website is updated regularly and newsletters are emailed every Wednesday.  You can also follow us on Twitter @YWIschool.  Our main method of communication is email so it is important you let us know if your email address changes.

When your child starts school or Nursery, you will be issued with a login for the School Spider app - this can also be used to login to the parent's area of the school website.  We will use the app to send quick messages to your smartphone.  (If you do not have the app, these messages will be sent to your email address).  You will also be able to make online payments in the shop area of the app.  Details of how to download it are in the document below.

Speaking to your child's teacher

We believe that the partnership between home and school is important, as children make better progress and achieve more when parents and teachers work together.

The staff and Head teacher are always available to talk to you. Appointments are not always necessary although on some occasions it may be more convenient to make one. It is usually easier for the class teacher to talk to you at 3.00pm rather than 9.00am, although do let us know any immediate cause for concern in the morning. It is always better to sort out any worries as soon as possible so please do not be hesitant about talking to us if you are anxious or concerned. We also hold formal parent interview evenings during the year where your child’s progress can be discussed in some detail.
