The school aims to keep in touch with you in a number of ways. Aside from these methods of communicating with you, we also hope that parents feel free to contact us with any comments or concerns. You can make an appointment to see the Headteacher, SENDCo or your child’s class teacher.
Before your child joins the school, you will be asked to provide your contact details via your child’s starter paperwork. This includes both telephone numbers and email addresses. On an annual basis, in the Autumn term, we will check with you that the information we hold is still accurate. Please let the School Office know of any changes that may occur during the school year.
Weekly Update Sheets
On a weekly basis you will receive a Weekly Update Sheet by Parentmail. The Weekly Update Sheet informs you of news from the school, dates for your diary and information on the letters that have been sent home during the week. They are also available to view on this website.
Please do check your child’s school bag at regular intervals, as letters can be easily lost. Where possible we will attempt to send letters and information via the Parentmail system, but where we do not hold an email address or the letter requires return of a hard copy consent slip we will send a hard copy home with the child.
Meetings with parents
Twice a year we hold Parents Evenings, which give you the opportunity to meet with your child's class teacher and discuss their progress. If you should wish to discuss a matter with your child's teacher between these events please speak to the School Office to organise an appointment.
There is a Friends’ noticeboard outside the front of the school. In addition, there is a school and community notice board where school and local community events/classes are posted.

Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Services, and we refer to these as “advertising” or “analytical” cookies. For example, the embedding of YouTube and Vimeo videos, as added by individual schools will require “advertising” cookies to be enabled in order to successfully play them. Schools that, for example, opt to track visitor data using Google Analytics will require “analytical” cookies to be enabled in order to do so.

Our Services allows schools to embed code which may potentially contain cookies. Please note embedded content, if displayed on one our websites, has been added by the school and not by eSchools.
