Parent Partnership links to areas where home and school work particularly closely:

    • Ongoing policy consultation with parents and the results of the parents' questionnaire
    • Team Cromwell (the Parent/Teacher Association) and links to family support groups

Our partnership with our parents is one of the most things we value most.  As staff working in a school over many years we have the broad experience of many children with similar- but not the same!- needs to each individual pupil. It is parents however, who will always know their child the best. When we can combine the deep knowledge of parents with the broad experience and knowledge of professionals with have the ideal, powerful, combination necessary to meet our complex pupils' needs. We are extremely happy to report that we have a very positive relationships with the overwhelming majority of parents and whenever an issue arises we will seek to understand and address any concern. Please see the "Parents' View of Our School" page to download full Parent Feedback results.
