How does the school communicate with parents/carers?
We use a range of methods which are summarised on this document which is regularly reviewed.
How do I keep up to date with school news?
In response to feedback we received from parents, information is posted on twitter accounts instead of regular weekly bulletins or letters. This enables small pieces of information to be passed on as and when needed, which is particularly helpful, especially in times of great change at often short notice. We ask parents to follow the school and the class twitter feed for their child. On the rare occasion a letter needs to be written it will be saved on the website and tweeted. At the end of each week we tweet a roundup of the week and mention any document which has been added to the website, to help keep everyone up to date.
We have an active PTA and you may like to follow their twitter feed as it is a great way to become involved in their work, should you wish.
Is there a school office?
Our office is open for medical needs only. There is a school post box for any letters and messages for the class teacher can be written in the reading diary and put in the communication box on the teacher’s desk. The teacher will then follow up with you and make a telephone appointment if necessary.
What do I do when my child is unwell?
Use the answer machine to let us know before the school day begins. Please let us know the details of any absence as we are monitoring the situation carefully. Telephone 01458 250735 (or email if you have a medical note) email@example.com.
How do I pay for educational visits?
We use a company called WisePay, all parents are given a log in for this.
