We use the following methods as our goal is to achieve strong communication and genuine consultation with all school parties:
We know that strong, positive communication between school and home is a very important factor in student engagement with our school community and in progressing their learning. We invite you to talk with us about your child at any time. We acknowledge that you know your child better than anyone, and we are keen to understand from you how they learn and what they do well, in addition to how we might support and challenge them.
The following is a reminder of the ways to best communicate with school staff in relation to your child. For administration support, please contact the school office directly via phone or email.
Step 1: Contact the class teacher by note, email, or by phone to make a time to discuss either in person or over the phone if suitable to do so. What's most important, is finding a way to communicate that is timely
Step 2: The Dean, or Deputy Principal, and then if you feel it necessary, the Principal
Step 3: School Board (use School Docs to follow the correct procedure for formal communication)
Our primary goal is to create the best learning environment for the students of our school. We encourage open communication and prefer that parents come to us to talk through a problem rather than discuss it in the community.
These are recommended guidelines for parents making informal complaints.
If you do not wish to approach the person concerned, contact a member of the management team or the principal to resolve the matter. The principal or management team member may communicate with the staff member concerned.
If you complain to a board member, you will be encouraged to resolve the issue with the guidelines above, and the board member will inform the principal and board chair.
If an informal meeting does not resolve your concern or complaint, you can make a formal complaint.
The school monitors and records any concerns about student safety.
