General Information

Parent Information

At Mount Pleasant Primary School, we aim to ensure that all parents feel part of our community. We are a small school, with a community centred ethos and we firmly believe in working closely with parents in order to provide the best possible education for the children within our care. We have an open door policy and encourage parents to communicate any concerns with us. As a first point of contact, parents are encouraged to speak with the class teacher, before communicating with other senior members of staff. We believe that this encourages positive relationships whereby we can work closely together to ensure all children are engaged in their learning and are excited and happy to come to school.

The school website has much relevant information which will help parents to support their children effectively and work alongside the school. You will find many updates relating to the day-to-day life of the school within the Newsletter section of the website. This provides parents with useful dates and upcoming events. 

Another useful way to stay in touch is through our social media channels. Please follow us on twitter @mp_primary, look out for class Twitter accounts and also make sure you have signed up to Class Dojo, where the teachers post most of the updates for classes. Class Dojo is particularly useful for sharing photos of daily life in class, with parents and it enables staff to give parents a window into the classroom. Often the question "What did you do in school today?" is followed by a response of "Not much!"; we can assure you, this is not the case! Class Dojo enables you to see exactly what an exciting curriculum we have built at Mount Pleasant and offers parents the chance to have a starting point for discussing what is going on in the classroom. 

If you need anything, please use the regular communication channels, including speaking to the teacher of the class directly, telephoning the office on 01633894820 or emailing mount pleasant.primary@newport.gov.uk

We look forward to working alongside you to achieve our vision of 'Sowing the Seeds for Success'.
