Parenting is not easy!
Many parents/carers have difficult times when children misbehave or cause problems at home and we are always willing to help. Sometimes a child will respond positively simply because they know the Headteacher or their class teacher is involved. Mrs Felton, our Special Needs co-ordinator, may be able to suggest strategies to try or refer you to the school nurse or other agencies - so please share any problems that you have.
If you have general questions about school the following may be useful: The Advisory Centre for Education: The school run
