'For I know the plans I have for you; plans to give you hope and a future.' Jeremiah 29:11

Parental involvement

We expect our parents to support us by ensuring their children wear the correct uniform (all named), do their homework and reinforce our behaviour policy (even when, as is almost unavoidable, your own well brought up child very occasionally falls short of our high expectations).


We strongly encourage parents to be as involved in their child’s education and the life of the school as their time will permit. It may be that you can spare 15 minutes, three or four times a week to read with a child, it may be that you are not confident about your reading skills, but could help with art and craft or perhaps you could help with sports or transporting us; whatever your talent we could welcome your help.


Regular parent helpers will be required to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Scheme) check and also sign a code of conduct.  Do not let the odd parking fine etc put you off completing it; we simply need to ensure that any adult helping in school does not pose a danger to our children. We will be happy to help anyone who needs help in completing these forms.  It can be annoying, but it is a small price to pay for ensuring the safety of our children.
