Parents & Carers

Pictor Academy

Do you miss the chat at the school gate?

We are aware that as many of our children arrive and depart school on transport, the chance to chat to other parents is not there. Therefore, we are holding a ‘school gate’ coffee morning once a month.

Come and drop in, have a coffee and a chat, meet other parents, voice your views, have a gossip, do what you want to really!  We’ll send reminders nearer the time, look out on the Yellow Pages and in this section of the website and hopefully, we’ll see you there.

Parent Support

Our parent support worker is Alison Tyrer and is here as a contact in school for parents. She is available to make resources (e.g. PECS symbols), answer any queries or worries and can arrange coffee mornings and workshops.

Alison can be contacted in school via the home/school book or leave a message with reception and she will get back to you.

Parents Room

There is a parents room in school which can be used by parents at any time.  There are tea and coffee making facilities and you can also find information leaflets on many services and activities that may be available.

We also have a parent library that has books that you may find useful. These are free to borrow and there is no time limit on how long you keep the books for. All we ask, is that you sign the book out in the box provided on the book shelf and leave a contact number.

Parents Handbook

When your child started at Pictor, you will have received a handbook in your starting school pack. These can also be accessed online by clicking the links below.

Parents' Checklist

Please find on the link below a checklist of things that may help you.

Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)

We are very proud to have been awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award for our work with parents.  Please visit http://www.lppa.co.uk for more information on this award.

Changing Places

“Changing Places” are changing facilities which are suitably equipped for people with additional needs and their carers.

Leaders start the transition to secondary in Year 5 allowing plenty of time to work with parents, carers and pupils to make an informed choice. It also allows for a seamless transition into secondary education. Strong partnerships with feeder secondary schools result in personalised support.
