Our school office is run by Mrs Atkinson, Office Manager, with Mrs Harkness, our School Administrator. The office is open from 8.20am to 3.20pm every day. A telephone answering service is in operation outside these hours. Any message left will be responded to as soon as possible. The phone number can be found at the top of the website.
To email the school office, the address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our first priority is to support your children and should there be any changes of circumstances at home, please let a member of the office staff know. We understand the importance of good two-way communication between parents/carers and the school and there are various ways this is achieved.
As part of our desire to be more environmentally aware, we communicate with parents via Parentmail (PMX).
All you need to do is provide to us on your registration forms email addresses for those wishing to receive communications. We use PMX to allow parents and carers to give permissions for school trips or meetings, and to sign up for a time slot at Parent/Teacher Consultation Evenings.
We publish both weekly and monthly school newsletters which are sent via Parentmail, to highlight key events and share news about the school.
We post our monthly newsletters on the office noticeboard.
The children create their own termly newsletter – The Informer – and this enables us to get the children’s perspective on the learning that has taken place.
Every class has its own message clipboard. These are maintained by the Class Teacher at drop off/pick up. As an example, you will need to let us know if your child is being collected by a different adult as we are unable to let your child leave school with other adults if the school office or class teacher has not been informed.
In the event of an emergency school closure we contact parents via PMX (e-mail and text). We also post details on our school website latest news.
There are two notice boards displayed near the front entrance and at the rear of the school. One displays notices from school and the other features news from FOWVIS.
Please check these regularly and support our activities, as well as offering to help us, as the funds raised really make a difference to the opportunities we can offer the children.
There is also a Parent Information Board in the school office.
