Positive Relationships

Building Collaborative Relationships

Our school strives to enhance each child’s self-esteem; providing a safe and secure environment in which they feel confident to take risks and reach their full potential. Through recognising and celebrating achievement, we encourage every child to view themselves as a successful individual. Below are some examples of the opportunities pupils have had to build positive relationships within our school.
