This area of the website is intended to provide gateway links to sites which we think some of our parents may find useful or interesting.
We have also provided some downloaded resources that details some of the ways in which school operates on a day to day basis.
Please email school if you have suggestions that could be added under this section.
As a result of our analysis of the most popular downloads from the website it is apparant that many viewers are interested in understanding the underlying principles of some basic educational tools and methods. In fact the second most popular download from the entire website has been the item below detailing 'CAT3 Testing and how school uses this indicator'.
We have therefore added links to some of the background research papers on small class size benefits, (especially for primary childen) and some of the other areas of educational practice that have interesting ideas to offer.
