Meetings with Teachers and Senior Staff

The beginning of the Academy day is a very busy time and although you may have important information to give to the class teacher or LSA, this needs to be kept short to allow for the registers to start and the class to settle to their work. If you need to meet with the class teacher, please make an appointment with them at a mutually agreed time.

Alternatively, you can contact your child's Year Group Phase Leader. Our Phase Leaders are available during the first part of the morning to discuss any concerns or issues you may have. The Phase Leaders for each year group are listed below.

During each term the class teachers have formal parents’ interviews over three evenings. We encourage all parents to attend these meetings as progress in the core subject areas will be discussed in detail as well as a summary of behaviour and attitudes towards work and Academy life. 

If you have any issues or concerns contact should be made as follows, starting with;

  • Class Teacher in the first instance
  • Phase Leader if unresolved  by the class teacher
  • Head of Academy/Deputy Head if the matter needs further attention
