Supporting Your Child's Learning at Home
Our experience has shown us that the support children get from home has a positive impact on their learning. We hope you find the below information useful.
See below for useful websites:
Parent / Teacher Partnership
We are always open and happy to discuss your child's schooling. We are keen to ensure your child receives a 360 approach to their learning throughout their year with us.
Therefore, we aim to keep communication open. Each day after school we are at the gate should you wish to catch us. You can email or phone the office with queries and questions, which we will endeavour to respond to quickly. And, as well as this we can offer face-to-face meetings or phone calls, which again, can be arranged by the office.
