Parental Involvement

We value the strong support and interest we receive from parents and carers.

We try to keep parents informed of what is happening in the school by communicating with home as regularly as possible via email, lunch wallets, Twitter, School Website and the Parent Council (TPSA). We hope that parents will further support the school by reinforcing and extending at home what we are trying to achieve in School.
