Relationships in the Community
We regard the education of our students as a shared responsibility involving the student, Parents, the school and the wider community. We welcome the involvement of community Members/organisations, local industry and education in its sharing of knowledge, experience and resources with us. Good working relationships have been established to facilitate engagement and communication between the school, parents, parish and the wider community that we serve.
Members of local business and the local community have been very generous with their time in providing expertise and guidance to our pupils and staff including playing an active role in our career days. They have also been very generous in terms of their support for the school show and providing monies for Achievement Awards.
