Communicating with parents
Effective communication between home and school is vital if we are to achieve the best for your child. If you have any issues to discuss, your child’s class teacher should usually be the first contact.
Staff are always willing to talk to parents, please bear in mind that the beginning and end of every day is a very busy time and if you feel that you need to spend longer with the teacher, please make an appointment.
We hold termly year group information meetings with parents, if you are unable to attend these meetings or wish to talk to your child’s teacher at greater length you will be given the opportunity to arrange a one to one meeting. We will also provide an end of year report for each child.
If you have any concerns about your child at any point, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher. We will of course contact you if we have any concerns about your child’s learning or well being.

The school is committed to its Equal Opportunities Policy in delivering the curriculum and in all areas of school life. We acknowledge and value differences and aim to provide access to learning for all children. We take great care to ensure that no child is discriminated against on the grounds of disabilities, sex or race in any aspect of school life.
Special Educational Needs
Pupils may experience special needs or need extra support at any time during their education. Their needs are identified through a series of measures including observing them in the classroom, diagnostic testing and through close liaison between class teachers, our special educational needs and disabilities co-ordinator (Mrs R Gude) and parents.
Our teachers are skilled in providing support for children of all abilities and needs within the classroom, and we also have skilled, trained support staff who are able to deliver specialist programmes to individuals or small groups.
Behaviour and Discipline
We set a high standard in terms of behaviour. We have a positive approach, which encourages and rewards pupils who behave and work well.
We have a dedicated pastoral team who can support you and your child in a range of areas led by our social, emotional and mental health manager Mr M O’Hara.
Our two school rules are simple:
Show respect for everyone and everything
Take responsibility for your thoughts words and actions
These are reinforced in all aspects of school life and at all times.
