School News

We have renamed our parents evenings 'Learning Reviews' as these will focus heavily upon the progress that your child is making and how we can best support them in the coming terms. This term they will take place during the week of 2nd March. Please note that we will not share books during these meetings so that we can focus upon the strengths and barriers of the learning process. Books and other work can be viewed at the separate Open Classrooms which will take place on Wednesday 25th March.
