Communication with Parents
It is vital that we have up-to-date personal details for all students, not just for sending home official communications but also if your child is ill during the school day. The school must be able to contact the parents, or, if they are unavailable, other adults who will take responsibility.
Please inform us regarding any changes in your child's personal details, including parents' and other contacts' telephone numbers in particular.
The preferred method is by e mail on:
email@example.com otherwise amendment forms are available from Reception.
Requests for paper copies of our website pages
We are happy to supply parents with paper copies of website pages upon request. If you require any information from this website on paper please contact Karen Sims on 01380 724886 Extension 243. Alternatively you can email on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lost Property Requests
