For Parents

On these pages you will find useful information such as term dates, parent information handbooks. You can also download forms for leave of absence, parent consent etc. to save you having to call in to the school office.

At West Park we aim to work with all parents, carers and families in order to help develop a strong and effective partnership, and we hope that by providing some of the information mentioned on these pages we can go some way to achieving that.

Parents are encouraged to visit for information and practical guidance to help them plan for their children’s return to school. This includes our latest update to the guidance for parents and carers on what they need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges in the autumn term
