Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA)

We are proud to have been awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award!

We have a successful partnership with both parents and the wider community which we use to enhance learning opportunities within school.  Visitors from the local and wider community are regularly invited into school where their contributions enrich classroom activities.  

We warmly welcome parents and grandparents with free time to come in and help, both inside and outside the classroom.  There are many ways you can help in school, such as hearing readers, gardening, helping with class projects and on trips. Enhanced DBS is required for regular volunteers, Mrs Gourley in our School Office can process this for you.
