You Said We Did   
Rainbird parents said there was not enough notice of the dates of school events. We now issue a yearly calendar of diary dates with monthly updates.
You would like a school photograph when your son/daughter joins Year 7. We arranged for individual school photographs to be taken in the Autumn Term. These have now been sent to parents.
You would like more information about transition to Year 7 We produced a Primary Transition Pack issued to Year 5/6 parents and pupils and available for download on our website
