How can I request a meeting with my child’s teacher?
Please contact the school office if you would like to arrange an appointment with your child’s teacher. If your call is not answered due to a high volume of calls, please leave a message and a member of staff will get back to you.
Once your appointment has been confirmed, please sign in on the monitor at the main reception desk, informing the receptionist of whom you are visiting.
During your visit, you will be required to observe any displayed or verbal instructions, and signage in place around the premises, such as fire and health & safety information.
We request that you do not visit if you or any member of your household are showing any symptoms of, or are awaiting test results for, a contagious illness.
Parents Evenings and Progress Reviews are held throughout the school year when you will be given the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress.
