Get Involved

Parent involvement in a child's education is crucial and has a significant effect on pupil achievement throughout the years of schooling. Most parents believe that the responsibility for their child's education is shared between parents and the school.

What's the best way for me to stay involved in my child's school activities?

1. At the beginning of the school year, attend our 'Welcome Back' meeting and get to know your child's teacher. Listen to their plans, know what they hope to accomplish with their pupils and understand how you can support at home.

2. Attend school events including parents' evenings and curriculum evenings.

3. Learn what the school offers by reading the information the school sends home.


If you can spare some time, we would love to hear from you. Any support you can give, such as volunteering to hear readers, would be greatly appreciated and it would also give you an idea of how our school works.

Therefore if you have any suggestions for improvements that we could make please email the office. Parents' Forum is also used to increase home/school communication.
