Parents, Carers and the School Community

In this section you will find a calendar of events for the year, copies of recent letters home and useful forms to download, like uniform order forms. If your questions aren't answered here, please feel free to contact us in school.

We believe clear, effective, two-way communication between home and school is a great way to support your child's learning in their early school years. You are welcome to come and talk to your class teacher in their classroom any morning from 8.40am. If you think you will need more than a few minutes, please ask to arrange an after-school appointment.

Every child has a Home-School record book which you are encouraged to use when reading with your child, completing homework tasks or learning spellings.

We use the communication app Parent Hub to help parents, carers and other family keep in touch with our busy schools. Download the app from your app store and use the handle @WirksworthInfants or @WirksworthCofE. We use ParentHub text service and RMIntegris to send emails directly to your child's main carer. Both are authorised by DCC Audit Services and used widely throughout Derbyshire schools.

We produce a newsletter each week, packed with details about what we have been up to in our schools, important notices for  parent(s) and carer(s) and dates to enable you to plan for events coming up. We try and group all our paper information so it goes home on the same day, but please check book bags each night to be sure you don't miss anything. 

Copies of other letters home are pinned on classroom noticeboards - please ask if you need another copy.

Parent(s) and carer(s) who are entitled to receive income-related benefits are encouraged to apply for Free School Meals. This ensures the schools receive its full quota of Pupil Premium Grant from the Government.
