Open and honest communication is very important to us and vital to ensure that we understand the varied needs of every child and family, and improve as a school. Parents and carers are encouraged to respectfully share all and any concerns or questions with the school, however big or small they may seem, directly rather than via social media sites. A phone call to the school office, an open exchange on the school gate or an email should provide the information that you require if indeed the information is not on this website. There is a 'post box' just outside the school office for other comments; these can be left anonymous if you prefer.
Parents and carers receive newsletters every two weeks via ParentMail; these are also posted on the website. Additionally, we send regular messages and updates via ParentMail. Our admin team support the setting up of this information system. Families can request hard copies of any information.
The Home/School diary is another useful tool to support communication. Just as teachers and LSAs might send a note home in it, parents/carers are encouraged to do the same. A full list of staff emails is in the diary so that you can directly contact us in this manner if you would like.
The start of the school day can be pretty busy, so where possible, communication in person is preferable at the end of the school day rather than the beginning.
Our staff are committed to ensuring that every child is happy and making good progress. They will communicate with parents/carers freely if they have any concerns or comments and also ensure that the school reports provide accurate and useful information.
