How does the school communicate with parents?

Communication with parents is so important to ensure children make the best progress possible and feel safe and happy in school. Please keep us up to date with contact details for parents and other contacts. Each child has a White Card on which we ask parents to list the people they give permission to, to collect their child from school. Ask at the school office for more details. 

Below are list of the ways we communicate with parents:

  • Weekly newsletters from Mr Long (can be found on the website)
