Parents have the opportunity to meet the teachers during Parents’ Evenings, which are held twice a year; October and February. The school operates an on-line booking system for parents to book appointments at these times. The system goes live normally about two weeks before the Parents’ Evening.
The school operates an open-door policy. This means that if you want to speak to a member of staff, feel free to come in and do so. If the member of staff is not available, an appointment can be made.
Spelling, punctuation and grammar is a key focus for us all at Knaresborough St John's and we hope this definition guide will help you with what your child is covering in school. If you would like any further information on what is being covered, then please come and talk to your child's class teacher. Click here to go to the SPAG page.
