Key Worker meetings

18 June 2015

Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to inform you that on Wednesday 1 July 2015, the Courtyard will be holding Key Worker meetings. This is an opportunity for you to visit the Courtyard and meet with your child’s Key Worker for the next academic year to discuss the role of the Key Worker and how we can work together to best support your child.

Your child’s key worker is your first point of communication. They hold weekly key worker group sessions with your child, discussing areas of interest and importance, focusing on personal, social and emotional development. They have daily contact with your child, fulfilling a pastoral role, offering counselling and guidance where necessary.

I believe that these meetings will be invaluable and will work towards creating an advantageous relationship between home and school.

These meetings will take place between 12:30pm and 3:30pm on Wednesday 1 July and will last no longer than 20 minutes. Please download and complete the reply slip and return to school by Wednesday 24 June 2015, indicating your first, second and third choice time slots. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that these slots will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. You will be informed of your confirmed time slot by Christina Meaney on Friday 26 June 2015.

Please note that school will finish at 12:30pm on Wednesday 1 July 2015 to allow for these meetings to take place. Your child will be dismissed at 12:30pm unless you indicate below that you would like them to remain for lunch, in which case, they will be dismissed after this. If your child accesses the school transport service, the bus will collect them from the Courtyard at 1:00pm.

Please contact the Courtyard if you have any questions.

Yours faithfully

Deborah Shepherd
Headteacher, The Courtyard
