Working in Partnership
We work hard to ensure highly effective and productive professional relationships with external partners to ensure the best interests of each learner. Leaders work strategically with services such as Children's Services, Health Services and the Police to support our learners. During the academic year 2020-2021 we are working with local partners to prevent against County Lines and have implemented workshops to ensure that our pupils, parents and staff are fully aware of any dangers facing them within our local community.
We have exceptionally strong relationships with our families and have a detailed knowledge about our learning community to ensure that our support and actions are proactive, prompt and in line with what our children and families need.
