Context and Rationale - CurriculumWe share information about our curriculum and children’s learning via the website. Children’s progress is reported in snapshot reports termly which is followed by a parent/teacher meeting and then Connect and Reflect afternoon where parents can come in to see children’s books. We need to be aware of parents’ engagement in this and not disadvantage a child because of lack of parent engagement or understanding. We are aware that when parents feel underrepresented in a school they may not feel a sense of belonging and therefore may not choose to send their child to our school. We must consider ways to represent the broad diversity in Britain through our school environment and curriculum and not just represent the children that come here. PCs - Age, disability, race, sex, gender reassignment, pregnant, religion and belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership
