Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Role of Parents

Support and help from parents/carers is an essential ingredient in a child’s education. We value parents’/carers’ support and knowledge of their child. We also welcome help in school time for such things as educational visits, transport to sporting events, assisting children with their work etc.

It is our intention to maximise the use of all available facilities and resources including staff/parent expertise. We plan open days when parents/carers are invited to visit the school to share the activities experienced by the children. It is a wonderful opportunity to see the progression in the pupils work from Nursery to Year 6.

We look for high levels of achievement in every area of the curriculum but in particular we wish all children to establish a firm grasp of the basics of reading, writing and number work as we believe that these are a necessary foundation for developing life skills.

Our priorities are that the curriculum is seen as interrelated experiences that are relevant and teach life skills. We continue to review and refine the curriculum and our methods of delivery to ensure they remain appropriate in meeting the needs of the children.
