The school works hard to provide a warm, welcoming and emotionally secure environment for all pupils and high priority is given to ensuring that the transition from home to school is pleasurable and well ordered.
Parents are regarded as partners in the continuing education of their children and good communication between parents and teachers is encouraged, endeavouring at all times to keep parents fully informed about their children’s learning and how they can effectively support that learning.
There are 20 pupils on the school’s register of special educational needs, including 1 with a statement of special educational needs.
