Parental Communication


All teachers can be reached by email. School email addresses use the formula Therefore, form tutor Jane Smith would be Tutors do not have direct phone lines but can be reached via the school main number: 020 3873 2290.

Teachers are rarely able to receive or to make phone calls during the school day, nor can they take unscheduled meetings. If you wish to speak to a teacher, it is best either to email them directly, or to leave a message or book a meeting through the main school reception. 

The constraints on school resources make it essential that parents use authorised school procedures and protocols in order to avoid diverting time and attention that must be invested directly in students’ learning and wellbeing.

The School makes available many opportunities for parents to communicate proactively with teachers and school leaders, both about their own child(ren) and on more general matters that can help the whole school to improve. 

Communicating with school governors

The school’s Local Governing Body can be contacted directly by emailing Parents are asked to bear in mind that school governors at all schools are unpaid volunteers. It will rarely be advisable to contact the governing body about time-critical queries.
