Partners in your child’s education from Reception to Year 7
We believe in developing a partnership with parents to maximise your child’s educational development. We urge you to ask as many questions as you want of your class teacher and learn more about the school’s consistent teaching beliefs. Diaries provide two-way communication and the on-line weekly newsletter brings parents up to date with events and achievements at the school.
