Parents In Partnership

James Hornsby School has strong relationships with parents, carers and the community, and as such we have formed the Parents in Partnership group.

The purpose of this partnership would be to share success and identify developments for the school as well as support the Student Council in developing an improved Community relationship. For more information or if you wish to become part of “Community Friends of JHS” please contact: admin@jameshornsby.essex.sch.uk

Assessment, Reporting and Parents Evenings

At The James Hornsby School we believe that both tracking and reporting on student progress are paramount to helping students become successful learners. Therefore we provide students with regular feedback on class work, home learning and formal assessments.
Moreover, parents and carers will receive a student progress report three times a year and will be invited to a parent evening to discuss their child’s progress.

In addition to our traditional tracking and reporting systems, we have introduced Doddle Learn in Year 7 and Year 8. Doddle Learn is an online platform that allows teachers and students to easily track progress by breaking down the key skills within each subject and provides actionable next steps to help students improve on their learning.

The Love to Learn Project

We would like to invite parents and carers of Year 11 students to our half-termly Love to Learn sessions. We offer these sessions to teach and show parents the upcoming curriculum in their child’s lessons for the next half term.

We hope to break down those barriers for parents helping their children with their school work and give parents a set of tools and skills to empower them to help their children succeed.

Below is the timetable for all upcoming L2L Sessions, which run from 4-4.45pm in the School Library. Tea and coffee is available for attendees.
