Working With Parents

The Use of Tapestry Online Journals 

At Pear Tree Mead Academy we believe that communication between school and home is really important and a vital way to share children’s learning.


Tapestry is updated regularly to share learning observations with parents.  As a school we value the observations of activities and learning at home.  It is a great way to share successes.


WOW Trees

Across the Early Years settings child can bring in a WOW pear or leaf to celebrate a success from home.  This might be celebrate that they helped tidy up or could zip up their own coat.  They may have ridden their bike for the first time.  This provides a lovely opportunity to share their success at home with their peers and our team.


Parent Sessions

Across the different settings we offer opportunities for parents to be involved in school life as well as sessions to find out about different areas of learning and development.  These include:

  • Christmas creative afternoon
  • Introduction to phonics session
  • Messy play session
  • Toileting workshop
  • Getting ready to write session
  • ’50 Things to do before you’re 5’ session
