Parent Information

At The Arbours, we believe that it is important that the academy works in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the best for all our pupils.

Let's work together to make our pupils experiences successful ones.

Please try to support us by helping with the following;

  • make sure the children arrive on time ready to learn
  • make your child read every day! Listen or ask them questions about their book
  • ensuring they do their homework

If you do have any questions, then please speak to your Class teacher or one of our Learning Support Assistants.  We are all here to help!
