  • How will I know how my child is doing at school?

    In the Autumn Term a Parents Evening is held when the child has been in school or in a new class, for a period of 5 to 6 weeks. This enables parents to meet their child’s new teacher to discuss how children are settling to work in their new classes, with their new peer group and their academic progress.

    In the Spring term, parents are invited into school to discuss their child’s academic progress.

    In the Summer Term every child will receive a written report of his/her year’s work along with the results of any statutory assessments. Parents will be given the opportunity to discuss this report towards the end of the Summer term.

  • How should my child search for an item of lost property?

    For general items, your child needs to first speak to the class teacher and look in class lost property storage.

    Please ensure all clothes are marked with your child’s full name and class. Named items will be returned directly to the owner.
