Key messages

We aim to provide rich learning experiences that allow every child to master basic skills, discover and develop talents, deepen interests and be resilient. Parental support is essential in motivating and engaging children with their learning. With this is mind, we ask you to support us in the following

  • Ensuring that children read at least four times weekly
  • Ensuring that children learn their spellings
  • Ensuring that children come to school with the items they need for that day such as: PE kit, spelling books, reading bookmarks, any letters that need to be returned and a school bag
  • Regularly checking your emails as we no longer send paper letters home
