Parent Links 

Parental engagement has a large and positive impact on children’s learning. We have a number of ways in which you can stay informed and work with us to improve your child’s progress:


The Parent app enables you to access achievement, progress, attendance and assessment information. You can also update personal information about your child using the data collection link. As a school this will enable us to improve how we engage with you and to assist you in supporting your child’s progress.
