The school team is here to answer questions and take feedback on all areas of school life, from specific concerns regarding your child’s learning, to educational goals, policies and the day-to-day running of the school.
Our teachers are your first point of contact. You can send a message through the Head Teacher – Mrs Burton – first thing each morning or talk to them in person when they bring out their class at the end of the school day. You can also make an appointment to see them by emailing email@example.com . Our teachers will happily talk to you regarding any concerns you may have concerning your child, academically or socially, for example, concerns about your child’s homework or friendships.
Mrs. Burton is available every morning from 8.35am, when you can speak to her about any matters regarding your child. If you prefer, you can make an appointment if the matter is confidential. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the rare occasion that Mrs. Burton is not available, please ask Mrs Mackenzie or Mrs Ibbotson (school administrators) if you can speak to the most senior member of staff.
Mrs Mackenzie is your point of contact regarding any administration issues, e.g. receiving ParentMail, dinner money, etc. Her email address is email@example.com. Reply slips should be sent in with the children, who will be expected to put them in their class tray.
The PTA (Parent-Teacher Association) creates opportunities for fundraising and social events for children and adults. They can be contacted via the school office. The PTA for this academic year is represented by Suzanne Bloxam.
The governing body has a range of duties and powers, and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. Its responsibilities include, but are not limited to, setting targets for pupil achievement,managing the school’s finances,making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, and staffing.
The Church has an active role in the life of Hatherop Church of England Primary School. We are a voluntary controlled school, which means that the school has a foundation governor, a member of the local parish, and the vicar is also a member of the governing body. The vicar leads collective worship every other week and other members of the parish church listen to children read, accompany children on trips, and are part of the Open the Book team. The vicar, Rev John Partington, is available for support pastorally; he can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01285 750332.
