Attendance for low attaining pupils is rising and parents have shared that they have found it beneficial to have a named contact in school to get in touch with for a chat, some information or share concerns.

Parents have also shared that support in meetings and access to information regarding Local Authority systems has been invaluable in improving outcomes for their family.

I look forward to meeting many more families over the coming year and would encourage you to contact me if there are any issues/advice you may need to make life easier.
