The importance of communicating with the school

Posted by

I would like to take this opportunity to remind all parents of the importance of communicating with the school when your children are away, unable to attend an event or needing some changes for the bus arrangements. We endeavor to ensure that all information is shared with parents about any events that we are running. We understand that there are times when children cannot attend these events. If this is the case I respectfully ask that you give the school as much notice as possible. In doing this you then allow us to make changes to our groups before we arrive at an event. I am sure you can appreciate the difficulty we face when children do not turn up on the day and we do not have any idea where the might be..

There are occasions when changes need to be made to the bus boards. We have currently been reviewing our procedures and have made the decision that we cannot take any changes on the word of the students – we must hear from parents in order to confirm this.

I firmly believe that the success of any school is reliant on clear lines of communication between teachers  - parents – school. We appreciate that there may be times when notices are lost or misplaced. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you are unsure of details.

I would like to thank you for your support in this area.
