As a school we work hard to develop links with our community. These have provided a wide range of opportunities for our pupils and have provided them with the chance to develop real life skills and interact and develop their confidence when communicating with adults. We have also benefitted from kind donations from local businesses in the form of prizes for raffles and competitions and financial support for some projects. We have also worked closely with 'Hapus' a local charity to run classes for our parents in financial management, positive parenting and English Second Language classes for our families.
