We introduced ‘praise postcards and phone calls’ at Greenfield in the week before the half term break. Ten parents in each class have received a special postcard or a very positive call from one of our teachers, commending your child’s achievement, attitude and effort. If you were lucky enough to get one this time, let your child’s teacher know what you thought of the idea. I spoke to one of our Mums yesterday and she was delighted to have received a praise postcard for her son and a call for her daughter: ‘I thought it was lovely for my daughter’s teacher to ring me and tell me how impressed she is with my little girl’s work and behaviour. It was another surprise on the first day of the holiday to receive the postcard praising my son! He was delighted and we were so proud of him.’ Please expect more postcards and calls just before Easter.
