She is struggling to settle in. She has found it quite hard the last month or so. Due to her disability we have split her funding between this school and her catchment school. What has surprised me is that she seems to have settled at her catchment school quite well.

I feel that there is a communication gap between teachers and parents. I have been given a communication book, however it is very often lost or not in my daughters bag. I don't have the book at the moment and I'm not sure where it is in school. This is a document I (as a parent) relay on quite heavily.

It provides a happy positive and safe environment, without exception every member of staff helped to make the transition for our two foster children when they moved here a fantastic experience for them both...they now look forward to coming to school every day ...this is a far cry from how they felt at their previous school. Both are advancing forward in every way ...both educationally and with confidence and self esteem!
