Parents and carers

We welcome and value your support as a parent or carer.

We know that parental involvement has a strong and positive influence on a child’s level of attainment: the more parents get involved the higher the level of the pupil’s attainment. As a school we are committed to working closely with families to ensure we can provide the best education and provision for your child. This can be achieved through open communication and ensuring that we effectively share information. We have an open-door policy and welcome any information or concerns you must ensure we can effectively support your child in school.

As a parent or carer there may be times when you may need some more support and we are happy to listen. This is provided through your child’s class teacher or class team and our Designated Safeguarding Lead; Nicola Witham or our Child Protection Officer; Gail Mansfield.
