Links with our Community

As part of the Healthy Schools Community Award we are evaluating our inks with the local community and trying to improve them to meet these targets:


 The school offers the opportunity for families and the wider community to be involved in, and contribute to health and wellbeing activities and initiatives.

The school seeks opportunities to develop a relationship with employers and community groups that develops children's knowledge and creates aspirational experiences for young people.
