Thank you to all of the parents who completed the Parent Voice survey in Novemeber 2020.  This was extremely helpful for our school in identifying areas that we may need to develop.  You can find the results and actions from that survey in the documents below.

One of the main actions we have taken is to improve our communication with all key stakeholders.  Not only have we increased the usage of our School Gateway app, we have set up the following platforms to keep parents infomed.  We also have created opportunities for our parents and carers to access online and in school learning opportunities.  For more information, please click on the link below.
