Our strong relationships with parents support the children to achieve and make the best progress they can.
Teachers are always willing to discuss ways to improve your child's progress and emotional well being.
Children have work they can do with parents at home. Staff are always happy to suggest other ideas.
Homework is carefully differentiated according to children's needs and reflects what is taught that week or is linked to the learning
