A Foreword from the Director of Children and Families Session 2013-14 Dear Parents This brochure contains a range of information about your child’s school which will be of interest to you and your child. It offers an insight into the life and ethos of the school and also offers advice and assistance which you may find helpful in supporting and getting involved in your child’s education.
We are committed to working closely with parents as equal partners in your child's education, in the life of your child's school and in city -wide developments in education.
Parental involvement in the decision making process and in performance monitoring are now, more than ever, an integral part of school life. We look forward to developing that partnership with your support.
I am pleased to introduce this brochure for session 2013/14 and hope that it will provide you with all the relevant information you may need concerning your child’s school. If you have any queries regarding the contents of the brochure please contact the Head Teacher of your child’s school in the first instance who will be happy to offer any clarification you may need.
