Parents will be more able to help their children at home if they are given oral and/or written reports in science that identify next steps for their children. At Tongwynlais Primary verbal discussions take place with parents of pupils in Foundation Phase twice yearly in the format of parents evenings. This is where progress and possible next steps would be shared with parents.
At Key Stage 2 next steps in science are identified on the written report. Across the whole school following receipt of summative end of year report, parents are able to send in a written reply and also attend an open afternoon to speak to class teachers and discuss further.
