Virtual Open Evening
Ludlow CE School - Open Evening - move to a virtual event Following a discussion with Shropshire Headteachers, we have made the decision to cancel the Open Evening as a live, face-to-face event, next Wednesday 29th September. Although our number of Covid-19 cases is currently not high in number, the local community (and upper KS2 children, particularly) have higher numbers, and so it is not in anyone's best interests to host an evening that could become a "super spreader" event. We will hold a virtual event from 1st October, on our school website: www.ludlowschool.com We are very disappointed that our Open Evening cannot take place as planned, but we have taken this decision in, what we believe to be, the best interests of the wellbeing of the school and the community. Please do contact the school with any queries. Many thanks, Paula Hearle
Supporting your child at Ludlow School
- Always make sure your child attends regularly, arrives on time and wears the correct uniform
- Keep in touch with school and attend meetings
- You will be sent progress updates each term, a full annual report and an invitation to an annual Parents’ Evening
- If you are concerned about your child’s progress at any time, please contact the tutor; a daily report can be issued and you will receive feedback about issues like work-quality, behaviour and homework each evening
- If you have any issues that worry you, please contact the tutor earlier rather than later; if we don’t know about it, we can’t deal with it
- Ask for letters and complete reply slips as quickly as possible; the Headteacher sends out a newsletter once every half term; you can have these emailed to you if you would prefer; just let us know; you can also check the school website for information
- If there are important changes in your child's life, please let their tutor know (medical problems, home circumstances, changes to contact details)
- Find out what sort of day your child has had at school; ask about what they have done, what went well? And if there have been any problems?
- Ask about homework and check the planner; you can communicate with any teacher by writing a note in the planner; in this, you will find merit stickers for good work and attitude to learning and any demerit stamps and detentions for things that have concerned a teacher, like poor organisation, a poor standard of work, or no homework; this helps you keep track on a day-to-day basis.
- Encourage reading and give help if needed; reading remains the single most important skill that will make a difference to grades achieved
- Encourage your child to take part in extra-curricular activities
