We endeavour to ensure that all communication, between home and school, is as good as it possibly can be.
To this end, we send out newsletters that cover news, important information and diary dates. This can be found on our website in the News-Newsletters tab and also on our school app in the Newsletter section. Diary dates are displayed on our homepage.
We also use a text messaging service to provide current information and reminders, as well as sending notifications via our new school app, which can be downloaded for free. Often teachers will communicate about homework and learning directly with classes via the Class Dojo. Parents can use this platform to message teachers about the work set. For all other queries, we have dedicated email addresses for each year group which can be found in the year group learning pages.
Expressing Your Views
Your views are important to us and we are always keen to hear your questions and comments. There are a variety of ways in which you can contact us - you will find these details above and on our homepage.
Speak with the class teacher
Parents’ evenings are held termly but it is often more effective if informal meetings are arranged with the class teacher. Whilst we are navigating our way through Covid restrictions, we will endeavour to hold meetings remotely via phone call or through our e-mail system, where year group teachers or Senior Leaders can be reached easily.
These meetings can be arranged via the school office or through e-mailing year groups and should ensure that issues can be dealt with swiftly.
Put your views in writing
Every year we send out a Parental Questionnaire which surveys your thoughts about how well the school is doing and enables you to express your views.
However, if you have some feedback, don’t wait for the questionnaire. You could send us an email or write a short note and send it via your child’s teacher.
Complaints are rare at Mount Nod School.
We have an open culture and the headteacher and staff are readily available to have a chat in order to deal with issues promptly. However, if a parent feels they need to make a formal complaint there is a procedure that is available from the school office or by clicking the link here.
