Speaking to Teachers

We try to be available to parents whenever possible. The best time to see teachers is between 3.15 and 3.30, except on Wednesdays which are our meeting times.
Please come and see the teachers as soon as concerns arise. We do not consider any worry too trivial so please do come and talk to us. We consider our relationship with you to be very important. We do expect any meetings to be reasonable and discussions carried out in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Collecting Children

We ask parents to wait for their children outside of the school at the end of the school day to avoid children wandering off unseen, and to keep school as quiet and clear as possible. Some parents of older children have made their own decision not to collect their children at the end of the day. If there is any change of arrangements for collection at the end of the school day, please make sure school is informed well in advance.
