Understanding Educational Jargon:  Schools can have a tendancy to use 'education jargon' that can often leave parents and carers confused.  Our staff look to explain educational terms and abbreviations where possible - please don't hesitate to ask us if ever there's a time when you are unsure of a term or phrase used.  To assist with breaking down barriers, we have produced a glossary of education terms for you.  Please click here to access the document.
