The following information is provided to help parents and carers know the most appropriate person to contact in school and the procedure for doing so.
 

School staff are in the playground before the start of school and the end of the school day, with all class teachers dismissing their class home. Many simple questions or concerns can be dealt with at this time. We ask that parents and carers talk to class teachers in the first instance. This is because teachers know the children well and can usually deal with questions or concerns quickly. If the class teacher cannot resolve the situation then parents and carers should then speak to the relevant phase leader. The Assistant Head and Headteacher, are experienced school leaders and will do their best to help if the situation still remains unresolved.
 

Mrs Stark, Learning Mentor, will be in the playground before school on most days. She is able to answer many of the general day to day questions about school and can listen to concerns which she can follow up.
 

For parents who are not in the playground at the start and end of the school day, contact with class teachers can be arranged by phoning the school office or by an initial, brief email to the school office email (office@cps.owlcotesmat.org) – where you may request a telephone conversation or leave a message to be passed on to the class teacher.
 

A discussion over the phone or, if appropriate, a face to face meeting is the best way to communicate. Teachers are busy teaching during the school day and therefore are usually unable to read or respond to emails during the school day. Staff are not expected to enter into lengthy or complicated email exchanges with parents but will respond in due course to requests for a telephone conversation or to arrange a meeting.
 

The information below gives advice about who to contact in a range of situations. If in doubt, always ring the school office for advice. Staff there will be happy to answer any questions or will direct you to the most appropriate person if they are unable to help.
