We look forward to working in partnership with you to provide a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment. We have produced this document in the hope that you will find it interesting and a useful source of reference whilst your child attends our school. Details of any amendments, for example, holiday dates, changes in staff and organisation, etc., will be sent to you as and when they arise. It is our aim that all children who attend Stranton Primary School achieve their full academic potential. To meet this goal we provide all children with a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. This falls within the framework of the National Curriculum and is designed to give the children a wide range of challenges and experiences as they progress through school. We value our good relationships with parents and are always most grateful for parental involvement within school. If you have any queries or problems whilst your child is part of Stranton Primary School, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to discuss them with the class teacher or myself. We feel the close co-operation between parents and school is essential to ensure your child’s happy and purposeful progress through school.
