Our Parent Support Advisors are Lynne Crawford-Ellis and Madeleine Evans. Please feel free to contact them for any support and guidance.

National Numeracy Challenge

A major drive to improve adults’ everyday maths skills begins this month, led by the charity, National Numeracy. The National Numeracy Challenge will reach people through employers, colleges, schools and outreach organisations. It offers a new online tool to assess initial skills and measure progress, and will guide participants towards appropriate learning options. The challenge brings a significant emphasis to tackling negative attitudes to maths and persuading people that they can develop the skills needed for everyday life. The aim is to help a million adults over five years. ASCL members can access the challenge online at or alternatively if you want to take part more widely through your school or college, please email

Parent View

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. By sharing your views, you’ll be helping our school to improve.
