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.
