Home school communication
Our favourite way to communicate with our families is face-to-face, we always have staff to meet with parents on the playground when we receive children from parents at the start of the day and hand back children to parents at the end of the day. A member of the senior leadership team will be available on the school gates in the morning and afternoon.
Families are also able to contact staff via the school office on 01526 832424 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The email can be used for families to send messages to teachers, the school office admin team will forward the message on.
Class Dojo is s a digital classroom management system that enables school to communicate to parents, either through class story or whole school story. Photo's, videos and messages can be shared and it is also used as our school reward system for children's learning and behaviours; whether it's working hard, being kind, helping others or showing our church school values.
