Extra fund raising can be done by individual classes where the children and class teachers agree.

Links between home and school are encouraged and welcomed. At pre-entrant stage, children will be invited to visit the school for a morning or afternoon at an arranged date- during this visit, older infant pupils will entertain the entrants for a short time and thereafter, the entrants will spend some time in the classroom with the teacher. At the same time, parents will be invited to attend a meeting with the Head Teacher when important issues relating to the school can be discussed and questions answered. Also at this meeting, the class teacher will demonstrate some of the material which the children will be using and give information on the teaching and learning of those materials.

Our BLOG is updated every weekend and text messages sent out.

Parents are also invited to help at school events e.g. sports day, assist with parties etc. Also to help at Out Of Hours School Learning Clubs e.g. Football and Cross Country.

The Head Teacher is always available for consultation with parents to discuss a pupil’s progress.

The school has an active Parent Council. Their fundraising has benefited the school greatly e.g. purchase of extra resources, supporting the pupils’ educational experiences.
