Our school is committed to working in close partnership with parents and carers to ensure each child reaches their potential.

School staff are always happy to meet with parents, but since schools can attract unwelcome visitors, it is essential that you call at the school office first. If you wish to see the Headteacher to discuss any school matter it is helpful if you first make an appointment.

If you have concerns or worries about any aspect of your child's education do not hesitate to get in touch with your child's class teacher, the Family Liaison Officer or Headteacher.

Liaison with Parents

Teachers are normally available immediately before and after school, but we would advise you to telephone the school office beforehand to ensure that the teacher has no previous commitment. You can also contact the Family Liaison Officer and Childrens Liaison Officer by telephone or speak to them on the gate at the start of the day.

Parent consultation evenings are held each term but additional meetings can be held, should you wish to discuss your child’s progress further.

Parent Helpers

We are often looking for parent helpers. If you have any spare time and are available to come into school and help, please contact Mrs King, (Family Liaison Officer), either on the gate in the mornings or by telephone 01303 276119

Dad`s Football Team

We have a team of Dads who play in the Shepway Father’s League representing Cheriton. This is a football league run by the Kent FA. The league was originally set up many years ago to provide an opportunity for fathers to meet other fathers and build community in the context of playing football.

While the league is competitive, the main aim is to enjoy playing together and we try not to take it too seriously. We welcome all eligible players of any ability or experience to join us.

  • There are currently six teams in the league made up of various primary schools in our local area.
  • The games are played every other Sunday evening at the Three Hills complex.
  • We play outdoors on the 3G pitch.
  • Kick off times vary each fixture (either 5:15pm, 6:25pm or 7:35pm)
  • Games last for 60 minutes.
  • The league is a 9-a-side league with the option of playing 10 or 11-a-side if both teams have the numbers.

In order to play for the team, you must be either a father, step-father or legal guardian, or a member of staff. Unfortunately, uncles, cousins etc. are not eligible to play.

If you are interested in joining our team, please speak to either Mr Thatcher or Mrs King. Click on the link below to view fixtures, results and tables for this season.


Keeping Children Safe Online

For many parents keeping their child safe when using the internet can be a great worry.

At school we have an extensive range of activities in place to help children learn and act safely online. Many parents have found the "Think you Know" material very helpful.

Please do not hesitate to talk to your childs teacher if you have any concerns or Mr James who may also be able to help you with any queries.

Throughout the year we also organise information afternoons for parents about online safety.
