As a parent or carer you play a vital role in your child’s learning. Building a positive relationship between home and school plays an important part in the education of your child. Effective communication is the key to the success of this relationship. Schools are committed to responding promptly and helpfully to your enquiries, concerns, suggestions and compliments. Your school also provides information about support services for children with disability, intensive language classes, special programs, and its policies and procedures.
Before contacting your school with an enquiry or concern you may want to:
The next step is to make an appointment with the most appropriate person at your school. Alternatively, you can write to the school. Enquiries/concerns received in writing are responded to in writing.
In your discussion with the teacher:
The administration representative will need time to discuss your enquiry with all relevant parties and gather as much detail as is possible prior to meeting. You are always welcome to contact the school for progress updates.
Your enquiry/concern will be managed according to established Education Department policy and procedures.
Anonymous enquiries will only be acted upon if the information provided affords one of the administration team the opportunity to make additional enquiries.
