Teachers are happy to make an appointment for before or after school.; please make an appointment by phoning the School Office. or speak to the teacher when dropping off or collecting your child.

The Head and Deputy Heads are very happy to see parents or carers at almost any time. Please contact the School Office to make an appointment to see one of them.

In October and March you'll be invited to a parents' evening appointment to discuss progress with your child's teacher.

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.
