Effective education depends upon the strength of the triangle that exists between the pupil, the parents and the School. When all three points of that triangle are pulling in the same direction, there is no limit to what can be achieved. Our philosophy is simple – we succeed together.
Our parents can always arrange face to face contact with any member of staff. As well as seeing Form Tutors at the start and end of the day, parents are welcome to arrange meetings with any teacher at any point in the term. Telephone conversations can always be arranged or parents may choose to communicate via email.
Parents are kept fully informed of the progress of their children by means of half termly assessment grades and regular test results, reports and parent-teacher meetings. Parents have the opportunity to look through books containing their child’s work and are regularly informed of targets for improvement.
Parents are always encouraged to attend school events and their support for the school further enhances the atmosphere that characterises our school. There is a thriving Parents’ Association which puts on a programme of events throughout the year, allowing parents to mix socially, have fun and raise funds for the enhancement of our pupils’ school experience.
It helps some of our parents enormously that we offer an extended School day from 7.45am to 5.45pm and we are very flexible in how these services are used.
