Family Support & Guidance

In our most recent parent and carer survey (February 2020) of the 518 responses we collected, 97.5% of parents and carers agreed or strongly agreed their child is happy at our school and 97.1% would recommend our school to other parents. One of the reasons we believe children and their families speak so highly about Beaver Road is because of the value we place on building positive relationships.

We understand how important it is to support our parents and carers, as well as the children who attend our school, therefore, we have created and will continue to develop this page to sign post parents and carers to useful websites and resources that can help support the families of Beaver Road.
