In the autumn and spring terms we have Parents' Evenings.

However, if you have any concerns or questions about anything to do with your child, please don’t wait for a formal meeting, but contact us right away.

The teachers are always pleased to see parents or carers of the children they teach, but it is not possible for them to talk to you when they are responsible for a class.

Teachers are happy to make an appointment for before or after school. The Head Teacher, and our Deputy Head Teachers are very happy to see parents or carers at almost any time. If you prefer, you can ring to make an appointment to see them.

Likewise we might discuss any concerns we have with relevant professionals and will inform parents if any action is required to support your child

We want parents to feel welcome in our school. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to help, for example, by accompanying classes on outings or helping with reading for the first half-hour of the day although this is not possible during the current pandemic.
