Churchfields Primary School Communications strategy
At Churchfields Primary School, we maintain a high standard of communication with parents, carers and the wider community that we serve.
We have a wide range of channels of communication and where possible we aim to use electronic methods of communication, both to maximise the speed and ease of communication and to ensure that we use as little paper as possible. We can of course provide paper copies on request from the school office where necessary.
We aim to respond as quickly as possible to all communications from parents. As schools are very busy places (we have nearly 500 children on site everyday), please be aware that you may well not get an immediate response. We aim to acknowledge all correspondence from parents/carers the same day and respond fully within 3 working days.
- Calendar section that we regularly update and which includes key dates.
- Class pages are updated termly giving key information for parents of children in that class (both about what the children are learning and days for PE etc).
Behaviour Rewards and Sanctions
- Real time email communications to parents and carers regarding Behaviour Rewards and Sanctions
Parents volunteers who act as a channel of communication to distribute general messages from the class teacher to the parents.
Contacting the class teacher
- Every class has an email account: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Teachers will aim to respond to within 3 working days.
At times we will need to communicate with more urgently and these communications will generally come by text message. Examples of this type of communication would include cancellation of an after school club, significant weather problems and so forth.
