We believe that a positive, mutually supportive partnership between home and school is essential to ensure that each child receives the best education possible. For our part we aim for every child to realise his/her full potential and to enjoy learning in a caring, friendly, secure and ordered environment, while at the same time developing respect and concern for others.
