Communication with School
We value the contact we have with parents. It is always a pleasure to communicate with parents because we know what a difference it makes. There is a triangle of communication which is essential to ensure that a student is happy, making progress and developing essential life skills: parents, student and the school.
We encourage communication with parents and we have a system for this. The best starting point is always the form tutor because they see the student most often and know them best. Above that, we have Heads of Year who, along with our Pastoral Support Officers deal with things that the form tutor has not been able to resolve. The next tier would be our Heads of Key Stage, Mrs Benigno and Mr Burgoyne and the final tier would be the Deputy Headteachers and myself.
Please do not presume that, because we ask a form tutor to resolve matters, the other layers of support are not interested. We do know what is going on and we are involved. However, it would be appreciated if parents could liaise with form tutors in the first instance so that things can be dealt with swiftly.
