Support for Primary Parents
The school aims to offer support to parents and families to support their children’s wellbeing, learning and development. Staff are happy to meet with parents to discuss any concerns they may have and to support in any way they can. The following guide offers an insight into routines and expectations for your child when they start school in Nursery or Reception.
Our aim is to work with parents at every stage of their child's journey through school and we believe that our high expectations for learning can only be met if we share information and work in partnership. The following guides summarise what we expect children to achieve in English and mathematics in Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and in English, mathematics and science in Key Stage 2 (year 3 upwards).
