Parents Forum

"I like how year 6 get to learn ukulele." - Caitlyn

Throughout the year we hold regular Parent Forums which are designed to inform parents about various aspects of school life as well as provide an opportunity for parents to give opinions or ask any questions. The Forums are always based on a theme and include a cup of tea or coffee!

This year we have enjoyed Maths and Reading cafes and PE ones in the Summer Term. This year so far we have enjoyed maths cafe in the Autumn term and are looking forward to more in the Spring.
