Websites and Documents to support learning
We welcome and encourage all parents to be involved in their child’s education. Throughout the year we will provide opportunities for you to come into school and discuss your child’s progress with teaching staff. Whether at parent evenings, informal drop-ins or specific events set up to give you more information on subject areas, we are always pleased to see parents. If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher in the first instance.
