Who to Contact
Key contact information for parents and carers to help you find the right person to deal with your query.
Tutors should be the first contact for any general student concern, either through use of the student planner, telephone or email. Tutors can speak to other members of staff on parents’ behalf and feedback if needed.

Raising a Concern
Concerns can be raised with the school at any time and will often generate an immediate response. The school asks that parents make their first contact via their Form Tutor. Parents are advised not to turn up to school to ask to speak to staff without an appointment to avoid disappointment. All staff have teaching commitments, appointments can be arranged during non-contact periods.
