We organise services in response to families’ needs and wants. If you have a good idea for a new group or service - please tell us.  We hold a Parents’ Forum every term so that we can gather your views but come and talk to us at any time.

"Governors keep their skills up to date through regular training and are very well informed about how well the school is doing. They receive regular and comprehensive information from the headteacher and visit regularly to monitor the school’s work."
