How we communicate
We greatly value our partnership with parents and communicate in a variety of ways.
We are keen to improve our carbon footprint and use digital communication as much as we can and at the moment we are using two methods through Primary Site App and the New School Gateway App.
The old Primary Site App will continue to be used for the next few terms and eventually will be phased out.
The new School Gateway App is taking over from the Primary Site App and we are already beginning to use this. This new App allows parents to book and pay for clubs, trips, events etc all online on the go.
All our newsletters and other correspondence and messages will be sent out via School Gateway. You can also find copies of whole school newsletters under the "Information for Parents" tab. Class newsletters and other information can be found on our class pages under the ‘Our Children’ section of the website.
Below you can find the information sheet for parents on the School Gateway App and also instructions on how to download and begin using the App.
We can provide paper copies of correspondence if you are unable to access the App, but you will need to contact the school office and register your need for a paper copy.
We have a Facebook page ‘Victoria Road Primary School’ and will upload any forthcoming events on this. Please follow us to help spread the word of our school achievements!
You can message us via our email address email@example.com or through our website on the ‘All About Us’ section under contact details.
We have an open door policy. A member of staff will always be on the gate in the mornings and evenings to welcome parents and children into the school.
If you have a problem and would like to speak to a member of staff it is suggested that you initially speak to your child’s class teacher first. There will be times that staff are unavailable but if you can make contact through the School Office, they will be able to book a time to speak to the correct member of staff as soon as possible.
This is not the only method we communicate with parents and carers. There are parent consultation sessions, drop in sessions and special events.
Remember – if you have any concerns, problems or feedback for us please speak to us, tell us, not Facebook.
