If a Parent / Carer does not have access to the internet they are encouraged to request information in a paper form via the School office.


Each of the above helps us to develop a great School / home relationship, but we also wish to remind everyone that we strive to create a warm & welcoming environment within the School where Parents / Carers can feel relaxed about contacting us to discuss concerns or issues.

If you would like to discuss any issues with the staff please contact us to make an appointment then just call in or telephone to chat !!
