For all general enquiries the first port of call is, of course, the school office - Mrs Beckwith (School Secretary). Staff in the office should be able to answer queries about the day to day running of the school as well as about any activities taking place. Any concern you may have relating to your child’s welfare or educational progress should, in the first instance, be addressed to the relevant class teacher, who will know your child best.
As you probably already know, teaching staff are generally available to address any immediate day to day issues with parents after school. Please be aware, however, that on Tuesdays there are regular staff meetings at the end of the school day, and these require the attendance of all teachers. Where an issue requires a confidential consultation or is likely to require a longer discussion, it is always best to make an appointment in advance with the particular teacher through the school office.
If, following a meeting with the class teacher, you wish to discuss further any issue; an appointment should be made with the relevant key stage leader or special needs coordinator, as below:
Early years/Foundation Stage and Key Stage1 Leader: Mrs Croft
Key Stage 2: Mrs Whitmore
Special Needs Co-ordinator: Mrs Sinclair (Mondays and Wednesdays)
In addition, this year Mrs Vaughan, the Head teacher, will be holding regular Wednesday parent contact sessions first thing in the morning between 9 and 10am. Please make use of this opportunity if you wish to speak to her about a particular matter. To be sure of an appointment, please let the school office know in advance.
