Helping Us

We have an ‘Open Door’ policy at Scawby Academy because we want parents to be fully involved in their children’s education.

We have a Foundation Stage induction meeting in July and a whole school Parents' Meeting at the beginning of the academic year. This gives parents and teachers an opportunity to meet and build effective relationships based on an understanding of expectations. Each class also produces a Curriculum Booklet each half term, informing you of topics to be covered and timetables.

We have two parents’ evenings per year, which are based on an appointment system. These are normally in the Autumn and Spring terms.

We have several open days through the year, when parents are invited to come and see their child at work in school and sample a flavour of the school. We invite parents to festivals, celebrations, weekly assemblies, sports days, concerts and carol services – to name but a few.

We have a very active Home and School Association, which helps to support the school by organising a wide variety of events and activities. Our Parent Forum, meet half termly to discuss school development and organisational matters.

Help is always appreciated in classes. If you would like to help in any class please contact the school. We are appreciative of parents with a talent or interest (sporting, artistic, craft, etc) to share. Parents helping in school will be asked to go through the Criminal Records CRB checking process.

The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged into the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) - CRB checks are now called DBS checks.

Our Business Manager Mrs V Bowers is qualified to support/help individuals through this process.

Safeguarding children

Every school wants to keep its pupils safe, but it can be challenging to keep track of each parent, visitor, or maintenance worker who enters the building. Our brand new Visitor Pass System is designed to streamline the visitor management process. The best part is that the added security of visitor ID stickers and log books helps keep every child safe.
