How you can express your views
Your views are important to us and we are always keen to hear your questions, comments and concerns.
Speak to the Class Teacher
If you require information or wish to share a concern, the first person to speak to is your child’s class teacher. The best time to speak to the teacher is at the end of the school day. Should this not be possible, we recommend that you telephone the school office and request an appointment. The class teacher will then contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time. Please be assured that the teacher will respond to your request within 24hours. Should the teacher be unavailable, the message will be passed to a member of the school leadership team who will make contact with you instead.
The mornings are a busy time for teachers, and it is important that they are able to be fully prepared for lessons throughout the day. Teachers will be available to discuss urgent matters with parents at the beginning of the school day and this can be arranged by making contact with the school office between 8.30 and 8.45 a.m.
Once the school day has commenced, teachers will not be available during lesson time as this will detract from the delivery of the curriculum for all pupils.
Speak to the Headteacher
Should you wish to speak to the Headteacher about your child, please telephone the school office. Mrs Butler does endeavour to respond to all calls from parents within 24 hours. On some occasions, however, she may be out of school or in meetings. In such instances your message will be passed to Mrs Telford who will make initial contact with you. Mrs Butler will also respond on her return, if the matter remains unresolved.
Parent and Carer Consultation Meetings
All parents and carers are given the opportunity to attend a meeting with their child’s classteacher each term. This is a valuable opportunity to discuss your child’s achievement and progress in school.
In the Autumn and Spring Terms, the dates of Consultation Meetings are included on the school newsletter. A separate letter is sent out which enables families to indicate the times at which they are available to attend. The school endeavours to provide appointments at mutually convenient times in order to enable all parents and carers to attend.
In the Summer term, a detailed, written report about your child will also be provided. Meeting with the class teacher are organised
All adults with parental responsibilities are entitled to receive information about their child. This includes receiving school reports and attending consultation meetings. If you are concerned that you are not receiving information about your child, please contact the school office who will be happy to assist.
Parents are asked to complete a short questionnaire after each consultation meeting. This help us to find out what we are doing well and how we can secure further improvement in the future.
Parent and Carer Forum Meetings
The Parent and Carer Forum meets once each term. This offers an opportunity for Parents and Carers to discuss key areas of school life with the Headteacher and other members of the school leadership team. The date of each meeting is included in the school newsletter.
Parent View is a short, online survey which allows both Ofsted and prospective parents the opportunity to gain information about the school.
