We make sure we have strong links with other schools and agencies to ensure the best support for our children. This includes a close working partnership with the Local Council and their various departments such as admissions, attendance and the Inclusion and Assessment team. We also have strong links with our other local cluster of schools (Radcliffe, Greenleys, Haversham etc) whom we meet regularly and discuss developments in teaching and learning and communal events that we can all attend. We are also proactive in seeking specialist advice and support from private agencies where needed such as play therapists, Educational psychologists and Pupil referral unit (Milton Keynes Primary Pupil Referral Unit, URN 134310, Shenley Road, Milton Keynes, MK3 7AW). These links help form a supportive community of educationalists from whom we can share and draw support as needed.
We are a very open and friendly staff team. There is a strong commitment from everyone at the school to provide the best environment for the children to learn in – whether that’s in the classroom, at break and lunch times or down to the cleanliness of the school. Any vacancies to join the team are posted here.
