Who's Who

Working Together
A school will only achieve its full potential if all concerned work together. Our school is made up of many different groups - children, governors, teachers, support staff, parents and parishioners.  


Communication between all these groups is essential. The school produces a weekly newsletter which is received by all those involved with the school. Parents are welcome to see Mrs. Woodward, the Headteacher at any time, both out of, and during school hours, but it is always safer to make an appointment. The teaching staff are happy to have a ‘quick word’ with parents at the end of the day, but if it is anything more lengthy, then please contact the School Office to make an appointment. Please do not be hesitant about contacting the school.


 If you have any general enquiries please do ask at the School Office. Should there be any change in your family’s circumstances, e.g. change of address, change of telephone number, change of place of work etc. please ensure the School Office receives all relevant information as soon as possible.

Open evenings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms to enable teacher and parents to discuss the children’s progress. In the Summer term a written report is sent to parents.

Parents play a considerable part in the smooth running of our school. A great number help in the classrooms with reading, art, sewing and craft activities. We are also fortunate to have a successful Parent Staff Association. If you are interested in finding out more about the Parent Staff Association then please contact the present Chairperson, or the Secretary, via the School Office.
