Phonics Workshop

Can you organise the  1 to 1 parent and child workshops to help with Phonics?

The session was well presented and made lots of sense. “ I know what a phoneme is!”

This helped me better understand how to support my kids with Phonics. Thank you!

Thanks to the team that led the workshop for the insight given to parents

Useful info into how the children are taught phonics and what to expect. Thanks


Meet the Teacher Workshop

Supportive and positive learning demonstrated. Making school fun and exciting.

Very informative

Feeling very lucking to be part of such an amazing school which is placing importance on such important life values.

Thank you very much for today. I feel the passion and enthusiasm of all teachers and Ms Pugh- it is having a great positive impact on my son’s (and all the children). Thank you.

Fantastic presentation: good to meet all the teachers.

Thank you for the meeting, very informative.

Very informative! Y6 parents need to be made aware that the period in the 6 weeks hols before secondary, kids need to keep practicing as they will be tested for sets almost immediately on starting.

Very informative, and comforting from the previous year. Going forward it would be great if we could prepare for sets/secondary school in year 5.
