Working Together

We believe that strong links between home and the school are vital; if we work together your child’s education will be more successful. If you have any concerns then please contact us so we  can resolve matters.

It is very important that we have two up to date contact details for you , in case of emergency.

It is not always possible to interrupt the normal running of the school day to meet parents if they arrive unannounced, and teachers will not be called out of class to speak to a parent, so if you wish to speak to someone at the school please email them or phone the school to arrange an appointment – please refer to the ‘contact us’ tab – thank you

If we have any concerns about your child, we will contact you at the earliest opportunity to arrange a convenient time to discuss the situation with you.

We would also be very grateful if you could keep us informed of any changes in circumstances or worries that your child might have at home, such as an ill relative, so that we can support them whilst they are at school.

If you have any concerns about your child, please contact their form tutor or Head of Year in the first instance.

If parents feel that the situation is serious or urgent, they should arrange to see the Head of House – the relevant Deputy Headteacher.

The Headteacher/Associate Headteacher will meet with parents, but would normally expect the Deputy Headteachers, to try to resolve matters before they are escalated.

Although rare, if matters still have not been resolved to your satisfaction, please consult our complaints policy, or write to the Chair of the Governing Body c/o the school. The Governing Body may establish a panel to hear the complaint. You are entitled to attend the hearing and to bring someone with you, if you wish.
