What do the Parents and Children Say?

We regularly review how well we are doing in school and where we might need to make improvements. In doing so we take account of the views and opinions of a wide range of groups within our school community.  Also read our comments from the children page for their say too!

Outcomes of any surveys will be shared via this page.  Should you wish to share any thoughts or opinions regarding how we can continue to improve and make a difference, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher whom will share the information with the school’s Senior Leaders.
