Calder House believes that education is about teamwork and welcomes the full involvement of parents in this process. Parents are kept informed of their child's progress and encouraged to keep in close contact with the school. Every term, parents are invited to meet individually with teachers at parents' evening and a full school report is sent to parents at the end of each term. This gives details of assessed National Curriculum attainment levels in core subjects as well as a report upon effort and motivation.

Parents are asked to take an active interest in their child's homework.

Calder House School is able to offer suggestions and support where homework has previously been an issue.

Parents are regularly invited to attend school assemblies and to join the Headteacher afterwards for an informal chat.

Each pupil’s individual educational plan is shared with parents and the six weekly staff reviews of these plans take account of parental contributions.
