What we do for families

Education is a team effort in which schools, pupils and their parents and carers all play a part. We build positive relationships with families to support children’s learning.

At Connect, we understand that it’s not just teachers and pupils who involved in the learning journey. The role that parents and carers play is paramount too, and it’s when we all pull together that a child’s school experience is happy, productive and fulfilling.

That’s why we promote a culture across our schools that is open and welcoming to families. We encourage parents and carers to come in and take part in their child’s learning. And we’re proactive about communication, ensuring you’re kept informed about school life, and that your ideas, concerns and feedback are always heard.

Our inspiring curriculum is designed to give your child a rounded and engaging education. We’re driven to secure success in the core subjects – but we also ensure that resources are in place for an enriching blend of extracurricular opportunities.

"My child has settled in really well and he has been getting extra support to help him with speaking, listening, reading and writing. The teachers are fab and the head master is lovely. There is a lovely atmosphere at the school and always something going on."
