Parental Involvement

We welcome the support of parents both at home and in school and parent volunteers for one to one reading support in school would be greatly appreciated. Helping your child with homework, reading and times tables will increase their confidence in school and help consolidate what they have learnt. We would love for you to join us in school at our special events.
