NEWS & COMMUNICATION

We pride ourselves in having very good home school links and place a great deal of importance on open communication. As well as daily conversations or appointments we communicate with parents in several ways.  A variety of information is published on the website including dates, events, holidays, school notices and what is coming up in the weeks ahead.  Parents are, at appropriate times, welcome to talk to any member of staff either informally or by appointment.  Parent’s information letters for each class are sent out at the beginning of each term by email. Our school Facebook page and Twitter feed gives live information on school activities. Tapestry and Marvellous Me share with you information on your child/rens progress and achievements. Text and email updates and reminders are also used on occasions. We will respond to any questions or concerns the same day or the very next day where possible.

Information on current events in school can be received through accessing the school facebook page or twitter feed below.
