We try to be available to parents whenever possible. The best time to see teachers is between 3.20 and 3.30, except on Mondays 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.
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.
Safeguarding for Parents
The Academy takes seriously its duties to assist parents and help them with on line safeguarding resources. As such we make you aware of the web page Parent Info, which is a comprehensive, free resource for schools and parents covering a range of safeguarding topics and information about apps and when they are updated etc. The content is updated by CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre) and can be found at http://parentinfo.org/
