Meet the Teacher

It was wonderful to see so many parents attend this event, giving you the opportunity to meet with your child’s class teacher(s) and start the flow of communication between home and school which is so important for good learning. It is also a wonderful opportunity for new families to meet old and to get to know other parents in your child’s class. I hope you found the event useful!

Class Representatives 2019/20

Some classes have their Class Representatives secured already so thank you very much to those parents who have offered their time. In the coming weeks, We will have our first meeting but there are still some positions to fill. Please contact me and your child’s class teacher if you are interested in being involved. Some parents have opted to share the role and this is great too!
