At St. Cecilia’s Infant and Nursery School we both recognise and value the importance and significance of the role that parents and/or carers play in their child’s education.  We will endeavour to support your efforts at home and increase the opportunities that school can provide for you to engage fully in your children’s education.

Along with the statutory requirements for reporting to parents and/or carers three times a year regarding your child’s progress, we also arrange a wide variety of opportunities for you to lease with school and share your child’s learning journey.

On a regular basis we will signpost course/learning programmes that will take place locally (please check bulletin board/newsletters/flyers) which you may wish to access.  On occasion workshops will be held at school and we will promote these and encourage you to attend.

The school prospectus contains information regarding the school uniform, times etc. Please visit the page to view a copy.

Kind regards

Mrs. E. van de Waal

Headteacher
