What is my child learning?
Teachers use Tapestry to communicate with parents and share children's learning and observations.
Parents can comments or like the posts that have been made. Parents are also encouraged to upload videos and photos of their child's activities at home for the teacher to see to help link the child's development at home and school. Click on the relevant icon to download the app to your phone.
How do I contact my child's teacher?
Teachers are available at the end of the school day to discuss face to face any questions that you may have. Alternatively, please contact the school office to leave a message or make an appointment by clicking on the button below.
SchoolPing is essential for receiving school messages from John Keble, including details of events, closures and other important information.

Can you recommend any books for my child to read in Reception?
Sharing books with children in the Early Years provides a gateway into a world of imagination, empathy and delight, as well as being crucial for developing language and literacy skills. Children in Reception will often explore books with their hands and eyes before being able to read the words accurately for themselves, and making available a range of high quality books with a strong visual interest level is key. Storytime is a treasured time of day for children of this age. Positive experiences with books for 4 and 5 year olds can lay the foundations for an enjoyment of reading for years to follow.
