Staff at school will always try to keep parents informed of the progress children are making. This usually happens at parents evenings and open afternoons and sometimes through telephone calls and meetings.

There are times when parents will want to talk to someone in school about their child. If you wish to discuss any issues the first person you need to speak to is your child’s class teacher.

If this is not possible, you could speak to the phase leader for the year group.

  • Mrs Duggan for Foundation Stage and Safeguarding
  • Mrs Patel for Key Stage 1
  • Mr Booth for Years 3 and 4
  • Mrs Grant for Years 5 and 6

The next step after our phase leaders would be our Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Grant

If there is something that the Deputies need some help in sorting, they would ask the Headteacher, Mrs Smith, to step in.

Our Family Support Workers, Miss McMullan & Mrs Harvey, our SENCO, Mrs Jeffery and our Behaviour Mentor Miss Wittering, are also happy to meet with parents and help out when they can.
