Parents & Community

Please check out this week’s virtual newsletter

Redfield ET primary school is committed to communication and engagement with families within the school and the wider community. Please call on 0117 379 0777 or email if you have any queries not answered in the section below.



Seesaw and Tapestry are the easiest way to make an appointment for a meeting or video call with your child’s teacher. You are also welcome to email the head teacher (Sophie Westerwijk) with any questions, concerns or ideas at  We are always happy to arrange a meeting or have conversations over the phone. During Covid restrictions, we can’t have conversations on the playground but there is always a member of SLT on the gates for quick questions. To pass on a message to any member of staff, please ring the office on 0117 379 0777.



All parents are asked to sign up to Arbor in order to assist us with keeping contact details and other important information up-to-date. We use Arbor to manage payments for trips, wrap around care and lunches. You can access Arbor by downloading the app or by visiting and then following these steps:

Type in the email address you have given to the school
Select ‘First Time Logging In’
Type in the same email address again
Choose your own password
A pop-up will appear asking you to verify access by giving the Date of Birth of your child named in the pop-up. If you have more than one child at the school, it will give you the name of which child they want you to use to verify the account.

Please ring the office if you need any help with Arbor (0117 379 0777)



We regularly send out newsletters. To lessen the impact on the environment, we only have electronic versions of the newsletters, which are sent via Seesaw and Tapestry.


Parents/carers can see their child’s online learning journals on Tapestry (if their child is in Reception or Y1) or Seesaw (if their child is in Year 2 or above). From Sept 2021, Y1 will use SeeSaw instead of Tapestry. This is also a means for messages to be sent out to families and for families to contact teachers. For details on how to get set up on Tapestry or Seesaw, please contact the school office or your child’s class teacher.

Most of our information and messages are sent via SeeSaw or Tapestry.
