Parents

  • What our parents say about our academy

    We pride ourselves on having a very close working relationship with our parents. We have an ‘open door’ policy and our parents know that we will always make time to meet with them. We have a full time Family support advisor, Mrs Jean Fredrick, who can support families on a wide range of subjects.

    100% of parental responses to our recent questionnaire rated our academy at least good and that all members of staff were welcoming and friendly.

    Comments from the questionnaires:

    ‘I am very proud to say that my child comes to Falmouth Primary Academy’

    ‘The children are made to feel very welcome. Thank you for your support.’

    ‘This is a very lovely learning school’

    ‘The school has been fantastic and very supportive. Since starting school my child has become far more social able and grown in confidence’

    ‘Falmouth Primary has exceeded my expectations’

    ‘Thank you for all the encouragement’

    ‘My child loves coming to school’

    ‘Keep doing what you are doing’

    Safeguarding

    “The action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm – is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.”

    Working together to safeguard children (HM Government 2013)

    Falmouth Primary Academy has a duty of care to ensure that all children are kept safe and feel safe. If we have any concerns regarding a child these will be shared with parents and carers and appropriate professionals.

    We have rigorous systems in place for monitoring children’s wellbeing and have members of staff who have dedicated pastoral care roles across the school. Mrs Fredrick is our Family Support Worker and Mrs Jennings is a fully trained THRIVE practitioner.

    We will seek the advice from professionals where we have concerns about the well being of a child.

    If any one has a safeguarding concern regarding a child they should contact the Multi Agency Referral Unit (MARU). They can be contacted on 0300 123 1116.

    Please refer to our policy page to read our Child Protection policy for further information.
