Who would be the first point of contact if I want to discuss something?
This depends entirely on the nature of your concern. If it is a learning need, you may wish to contact the SENCo or your child’s Head of Year. If the concern is more of a pastoral matter you would contact your child’s Pastoral Manager. Contact information for key staff can be found on our Contact page.
Who else has a role in my child’s education?
This is dependent on your child’s needs; the people involved may include:
- The Well Being Team
- External Professionals
- The Learner Support Team
- Faculty Teaching Assistants
- The Additional Needs Team
Who can I talk to if I am worried?
Again, this is dependent on the nature of your worry. All of our staff will listen to your concerns and take appropriate action. We encourage parents to make contact with the school and you may consider contacting the following staff:
- Form Tutor
- Progress Leader
- Pastoral Manager
Any of these people will advise you and put you in contact with the relevant support.
Who should I contact if I am considering whether my child should join your school?
If your child has a special educational need you should contact the SENCo, Mrs M Kilburn and make an appointment to visit our school. We actively encourage visits from prospective parents and their children.
If you are unsure of your child’s need please make contact with the school’s General Office and they will help you contact the relevant person to help you.
