We work closely with parents. Parents are encouraged to contribute to the school development plan annually. We conduct a parent survey every Summer Term and family feedback is part of our termly Parent Consultations. We listen to our families and take on board their suggestions. Some of our most effective strategies for improvement have evolved from suggestions made by our families.
