Parents/Carers as Partners

As a School we aim to form strong partnerships with parents and carers in support of their children's learning.  There is a wealth of information on this website which can help parents to become more involved in their children's learning and share in their success. 

Watch out for the continuous development of this page which will shortly give easy access to information and suggest ways in which you can use the content to support your children.

If there are ways in which you think we can improve this support, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or the headteacher who will be pleased to discuss your suggestions.
