‘By working together we promote a positive atmosphere where our children can succeed and achieve their best’.

As a school we aim to: 

  • Ensure that your child achieves his/ her potential as a valued member of the school community. 
  • Provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which wherever possible meets the individual needs of your child. 
  • Reflect and respect the cultural and linguistic diversity of parents and children in the work of the school. 
  • Be open and welcoming at all times and provide opportunities for you to become involved in the daily life of the school.  
  • Agree future educational targets at the statutory annual review of your child’s EHCP. 
  • Inform you of concerns around your child’s work or behaviour.  
  • Keep you informed about school activities through regular letters, newsletters and information about special events.  
  • Respond to your concerns quickly and effectively. 
  • Celebrate your child’s success with you. 
  • Provide inclusive opportunities to develop links with the wider community.  
  • Ensure that staff are available during parent consultations.  
  • Provide you with a home school diary to aid communication.   

As parents we ask you to: 

  • Send your child to school suitably dressed with appropriate clothing for lessons, e.g. swimming clothes, clothes for outdoor wear.  
  • Notify the school if your child is ill and keep your child at home for the time required (48 hours from last bout of sickness and or diarrhoea).
