Ways to get in touch…

There is plenty of ways to get in touch. We have an open door policy which means we want to hear from you, especially if you have a worry or problem.

If this is about your child, we always insist that you speak to your child’s class teacher first.  They are the one who knows your child the best and spends the most time with them.  The vast majority of questions can be answered by them.  Their contact details can be found in the Parent Handbooks.

Our communication policy states that we will respond within two working days to any requests. We usually will be far quicker than this but sometimes things are pre-planned and so we cannot reply straight away.
