At William Torbitt Primary School we run a range of parent workshops throughout the year. We see these as an important part of school life, and is crucial in ensuring that links between school and parents remain strong and work to support the children’s progress. Workshops are run at a variety of times, so that parents with varying commitments or hours of work are able to attend.

This area of the website is to enable parents who were unable to attend to access the information given.


Year Group Parent Meetings

At the start of each new academic year, we run a series of ‘Year Group Parent Meetings’ where the year group leader talks to parents about the curriculum, how learning is organised and expectations.

If you were unable to attend the meeting please find below the slides used during the presentations.
