E-mail Communication

As well as the Whole School Newsletters, e-mail is used to distribute other whole school information, typically where the weekly newsletter cycle is not timely enough for the information. 

It is essential that parents and carers keep e-mail details up to date to ensure all messages are received.

General and/or Specific Enquiries

We are always keen to discuss any issues or concerns face-to-face so they can be readily understood and resolved promptly. 

If you have a specific concern relating to your child, please contact your class teacher in the first instance. If they are unable to resolve the issue, help will be sought from the Year Leader. If the issue is still unresolved, it will be escalated to the Senior Leadership Team. 

The Senior Leadership team are always present on the front gates as children enter school each morning and in the playground at the end of the school day to welcome the children and families.
