There are many ways in which you can help and encourage your child as they begin full time schooling.  Further information will be available as your child starts to attend our school through our website, regular newsletters and information and parent evenings.

If you would like to take a more active role in school we would be delighted to welcome you. We have parents and members of the community who help regularly in school with all aspects of the curriculum (e.g. reading and creative activities).

This website is designed to answer many of the initial questions which parents have when looking at schools but should you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school. We firmly believe in the importance of ongoing two-way communication.
