We really care about the children in our school and keeping them safe, healthy and happy.

In order to support your children as best we can, we are committed to working with you and your family. We work closely with many different organisations, so if we don’t have the expertise ourselves we usually know where to find it.

If we think your child may need extra support we will discuss this with you. If you think you or your child needs help or advice of any kind, please let us know. We have a team of people who work with us at school to support our families and children. Some are at school every day, but some only occasionally.

Our Peer Buddies are older children who are elected to support other children in the playground if they are feeling sad, lonely or who need some help with resolving small issues. They are trained by our Learning Mentor and know to go to adults if the issues are more serious.

Let's make something beautiful together...
