Speaking to the teacher
There are times when you’d like or need to speak to your child’s teacher. It could be letting them know about issues at home that might affect your child in school, asking questions to help you support your child with homework or a query about something your child has mentioned.
Here are a few different ways to choose from:
Drop off (8:45am)
Class teachers will be in class to greet children coming from breakfast club or straight from home. Phase leaders and members of the Senior Leadership Team will be on duty in the playground to direct children and available to have a chat about any issues.
Pick up (3:30pm)
You can ask to speak to the teacher after they have dismissed their class.
You can arrange a meeting with the teacher in person or through the office on 020 7226 4708 0r email firstname.lastname@example.org
Leave a message for the teacher with the office either in person, by phone or via the office email: email@example.com. Emails to the office will receive a prompt reply to confirm the message has been passed on.
Teachers use email primarily for internal communication and parents should not expect to have direct contact with them by email.
Your child’s Phase leader may be better placed to help with certain questions and queries, especially with regards to the curriculum, emotional support and behaviour.
Years 1-2 – Aimee Leeds
Years 3-4 – Chris Field
Years 5-6 – Isabel Roberts
They are able to be contacted in the same ways as teachers above.
For specific issues, feel free to speak to, arrange a meeting or pass a message via the office to the following:
Extended Day & Clubs – Charlie Moir
Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) – Bridget Hradsky
Taking issues further
If the Phase Leader can’t help or you feel the matter needs escalating, try speaking to the Deputy Headteacher, Mike Dickie.
And if they can’t help, contact the Headteacher, Sandeep McNicholl.
If you have a serious matter and you’ve exhausted all these options you can contact the Chair of Governors, Duncan Aldred by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once a term there is a morning meeting where parents can ask any questions directly to the Head teacher. Look at the calendar on the school website or the notice board for the next date.
