How to help your child further

Your children receive the best education when you and our dedicated teachers work as a team. It's a parents enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspires children to do their best; and a teacher's ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve wonderful things.

We ask that you aid the school by

  • Ensure your child is at school for the start of the school day (8:45am)
  • Make sure they bring their book bag every day
  • Hear them read every night
  • Make sure they bring their P.E and swimming kit every week
  • Help your child learn their spellings ready for the test
  • Encourage your child to complete any homework given
