“ The Change4Life Club has helped the school to fully promote and reinforce our values of respect, determination, self-belief, honesty and teamwork. It has provided support for our vulnerable children and enabled them to become fully integrated into both the school and local communities. The celebration events have increase parent and community involvement in our school and helped to develop parent and staff relationships. We have had lots of positive feedback from parents thanking Mrs Best for her enthusiasm and work supporting children who lack confidence and certain social skills. Head teacher
