Wold Academy recognises the important role that parents play in the education of their children.
We see the educational experience as a partnership between home and the academy.
Parents are encouraged to attend meetings, assemblies, Numeracy/Literacy training and other school events and to come into the classrooms as reading volunteers. Make sure to check the school website regularly to keep yourself informed.
Parents are always welcome in school either to visit or to talk through matters that may be causing concern. The Principal and Vice Principal are available on a daily basis as are class teachers and Year Group Leaders. To comply with fire and security regulations, parents are asked to make initial enquiries at the school office.

Another fun thing that is happening in Spain and has just started in Hull is that children are creating art work and putting it in their windows. Then when other children are out taking a walk to get exercise they can see all the other children’s work – a kind of outside gallery.
