Parents and community members play an important role in their children’s education and a strong partnership between parents and schools enriches the learning experience.
Regular newsletters are sent out on a Thursday on a fortnightly basis to parents. All the communication is sent home in the pupils’ personal communication file.

Parents are encouraged to meet with any staff member at a mutually convenient time to discuss relevant issues and concerns. Your child’s homework book may be used to communicate with the teacher. Should you require a meeting with a teacher, please contact the front office to make an appointment, or you may request a meeting via the homework book.
The school has an established procedure for dealing with grievances, and we urge you to use this system to resolve any issues relating to your child or a staff member. The diagram will show you how to go about addressing a problem. If a sensitive issue is to be raised with a particular teacher, please send a letter in a sealed envelope marked for his/her attention – Do not write in your child’s exercise books or homework diary.
