Communications with Families
We regard our school as a partnership between home and school deal working together and supporting one another in a shared endeavour. The key to the success of this relationship is communication. Our open door policy means that parents/caregivers are free at any time to make an appointment to see the teacher at a mutually convenient time. Good professional practice entails teachers getting to know their students and families well and having excellent communication.
There is a host of situations where informal communication can take place such as sports days, blogs, gatherings, after school, camps etc and we encourage you to chat with teachers then. Obviously specific issues about your child will need to be done at another time. There are more formal opportunities for communicating such as parent/teacher conferences. However, please feel free to make an appointment anytime throughout the year if you would like one.
The regular school newsletter is an important part of the school wide communication process and we encourage all parents and caregivers to read this, as it contains a huge array of information. It is sent home or emailed every second Wednesday, and can also be seen through our school website. The school’s website also has information relating to a variety of aspects of our school. Our school Facebook page also gives up to date information.
