The Team attend many of the schools events including parents’ evenings, curriculum events, community events and it is their commitment to the wider school that is also a powerful tool in their effective practice. The students know the team well, and the team know parents well.
The team have helped students to overcome what seemed to be ever mounting challenges and they open a path with students, not in a way that is expansive but incrementally to allow them to capture gains in small ways, which eventually add to the big picture which is our students’ ultimate educational achievement and Progress.
