    In an Emergency

    Every September the school office will send out your child’s Data Collection Sheet.  This will have all of your child’s details that we hold in school on.  It is your responsibility to have this completed and returned to school ASAP.
    In school we keep records of your child’s address and emergency contacts.
    It is vitally important and you as a parent must keep the school office updated of any changes of address or contact numbers. throughout the school year.
    In an emergency we will only be able to contact the numbers we have on file.
    Throughout the school week the school office will send various texts with various information therefore, please ensure your mobile numbers are up to date.

    Messages to Staff

    In order to ensure important information is not lost in transit or misunderstood, we have reviewed how and what information we record from Parents and have created a set of clear guidelines that we can all work to.

    Firstly, there will be no changes to the ways we record all safeguarding information and staff and I will still be around to take short messages from the yard on a morning and evening. However, if a parent wants a more detailed conversation, staff will ask parents to make an appointment through the school office. This will allow for the matter to be discussed fully, hopefully resolved, and  a clear plan on how to proceed in the future.

    This meeting will be recorded by the relevant staff then myself and the leadership team will be made aware of the contents of the record. This also means that rather than speaking to parents on the telephone about important issues, parents will need to make an appointment to ensure that the matter is dealt with within these new guidelines.
