Our Trust Family Hub
Simply, we believe that the partnership between school and families is the most important one for our children to succeed. In order to succeed, we aim to create a stimulating learning environment for the children and families, creating a caring school where the children and families are safe, feel valued and can achieve their best. A school where children, parents and staff are excited by learning and experiencing rich and enjoyable learning journeys through their time at the school.
Our family hub is an approach to the delivery of early help services centralised around each school community providing information and support to children and families. Parental engagement is paramount, and we will actively put in support and training for parents to help transform not just the life chances of the children, but to transform the community through engagement, aspiration and inspiration.
