Contacting Staff 


For all general enquiries the first port of call is, of course, the school office - Mrs Gray (Office Manager).  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 any issue further, 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 Tuesday parent contact sessions first thing in the morning between 9am 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, or you may also have a conversation within these times if that suits you better.
