Life at The Abbey
“It is of paramount importance that each child in our care feels happy, secure and confident.”
Central to their well-being is the bond of mutual trust and respect that forms between a child and their class teacher. We take great care to nurture this bond, both through day-to-day teaching and through regular meetings that take place throughout the school day. Children are also encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities which help to develop their self-confidence and promote their individuality.
We believe in a strong partnership between parents and teachers. Members of staff are always available to discuss any aspect of a child’s development and there are many formal and informal occasions when parents can meet our teachers. There are also plenty of opportunities for members of the family to support the children in cultural and sporting activities.
It is important that parents enjoy being part of our school as much as their children do. We also include in our calendar a ‘Grandparents’ Morning’, when pupils can invite their grandparents or other members of the family or close friends to come and enjoy the school on a normal working day.
In addition to all the activities on offer at The Abbey, we also provide after-school care from 4.00pm until 5.00pm for those children not involved in a club and whose parents wish to collect them later than the normal end of school day.
