Please can you make sure that your child is at school on time so they can maximise their time in our first lesson phonics (KS1) and guided reading (KS2).

Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.

The survey can be completed at any time and helps the school to understand its strengths and areas for improvement.
