HT Open Forum - September 2017

As a school we consider we have a very inclusive and open door policy with regard to communication on any school related issues. In addition to the above general availability, it is my intention to set aside specific time once per month after school as I know parents/ carers can sometimes find it difficult to manage to school during daytime hours. This open forum will run from five o’clock until six o’clock. If there is an issue or area of school life where you require further information or want to share your views please contact the school to agree an appointment time and I will be happy to meet with you to discuss further at this time.

The next drop in is planned for - date to be confirmed.
