Parental Engagement and Support

At Broomwood Primary School we highly value the role parents and carers play in their children's education. In the Early Years Foundation Stage we work closely with parents to develop a deeper understanding of your child and how we can support them best when they are in our setting. 

Play and stay sessions

Each term we host a play and stay session where you are welcome to come into class and engage in exciting activities alongside your child. Your children love nothing more than to show you want they have been learning and show you their learning environment. These sessions are open to all members of the family and we will keep you informed through letters and text messages when they occur. 

Focus child approach

Across Early Years we use a focus child approach to gather detailed observations of a set group of children and plan their next steps. Your child will be a focus child once every half-term. It is during this time that we will encourage you to contribute evidence towards your child's learning by sharing their achievements at home. This will take place through see-saw.


We use see-saw to communicate, share learning between home and school and provide homework. See-saw is a platform for parents to share wonderful learning and experiences from home. We love to see where your child has been at the weekends, hobbies they have outside outside of school and wonderful moments which make you proud.
