Becoming Involved in the School


The school values the important part that parents play in their children’s education and sees partnership with parents as an effective way of enhancing children’s achievements and promoting better school ethos and communication. We communicate regularly through school newsletters and our school website and we encourage communication through your child’s Reading Record or Homework Diary.
