Communication with Teaching Staff – Guidelines for
Parents and Carers
If you wish
to discuss a matter that has recently arisen concerning your daughter with a
teacher in private, please request an appointment at the School Office. The teacher concerned will then contact you
(if possible, later that day) to arrange a suitable time which cannot be in the
normal teaching day, which is 8.30am-3.30pm.
It is not possible to discuss matters privately at drop off at 8.30am or
at pick up at 3.30pm.
The first point
of contact should be with the teacher concerned.
Diary is the ideal mode of informally communicating with staff. However, please note that, in the same way as
staff communicate with parents respectfully, the same must apply to parents
communicating with staff. Please write
briefly and legibly in the comments section only, if possible, or we would be
happy to receive a separate note.

pass. Having quickly got it up to our
end, we unfortunately missed the shot.
Royal Russell passed very well and managed to score two goals before
half time. In the second half, despite
some really good defending, Royal Russell were very quick and scored a three
further goals. We had a couple more
attempts at goal but were unlucky. The
final score was 5-0 to them, but we really enjoyed it and are looking forward
