Teachers strive to establish partnerships with parents to support student learning. Strong communication is fundamental to this partnership and to build a sense of community between home and school.


Children learn best when parents and teachers work together to encourage and support them. Clear, open communication is paramount. Sharing and upholding the same values is crucial if children are to be expected to uphold the same standards at home and at school.

If there is something you are unsure about, something you would like more information on or a question you would like to ask, then please get in touch.

Obviously with a teaching commitment we will not always be able to respond immediately. We will endeavour to answer all queries within a 24 hour period and are governed by the school policy to do so within a 48 hour period. If your request is of a more urgent nature then we ask that you contact the school office on: 01457 872 072 so an appropriate person can support you.

Please could we ask that when you do email that you provide as much information as possible. This will allow the member of staff to source any necessary answers or details to your enquiry before making contact.  

If you have a concern or enquiry about your child then the form teacher is your first point of contact. If the nature of this is concerning a specific subject then it would be more appropriate to contact this member of staff directly as they will be able to discuss this with you in more detail.

If the nature of this is concerning attendance, a medical issue, special educational need, finance or child protection then please could we ask that you direct this to the designated person in school. All details are shown on the contact page on the top menu bar.
