Parents are asked to read and sign our home/school contract prior to their child starting school.
Each class has a pupil representative on our School Council and Eco team. They meet half-termly to discuss all aspects of school life e.g. playground equipment, snack food, animal care, recycling. We encourage opinions, group decision making and action! Questionnaires are sometimes used to find out what children think about certain aspects of school life.
Parent Voice and Involvement
