NEWS & COMMUNICATION

We pride ourselves in having excellent home-school links and place a great deal of importance on open communication. As well as daily conversations or appointments we communicate with parents/carers in several ways. 
 
Our main source of communication is via email. It is a requirement of the school that we be provided with an up-to-date email address as our main point of communication and phone numbers for a minimum of two separate contacts, as required by law.
 
 A variety of information is published on the website including dates, events, holidays, school notices and what is coming up in the weeks ahead. 
 
Parents/Carers are, at appropriate times, welcome to talk to any member of staff either informally or by appointment. 
 
Our school Facebook page gives live information on school activities. Tapestry and Marvellous Me share with you information on your child/ren’s progress and achievements and can act as a two-way communication system with class teachers. 
 
We will respond to any questions or concerns the same day or the very next day where possible.
 
The School Gateway App. can be used to access emails, messages, order and pay for dinners. All your school communications in one place.
