Protocol for Communication with Teachers
Pastoral or General Issues – Primary and Secondary
The first point of contact with the school is your son’s homeroom teacher for secondary students or your son’s classroom teacher for primary students. These teachers see your son each school day and are charged with the responsibility of overseeing your son's everyday pastoral care.
Subject Specific Issues – Primary and Secondary
On matters that relate to a specific subject, in the first instance you should contact your son’s class teacher or subject teacher. Consequently, speak with your son and find out the names of his homeroom and class/subject teachers.
Please understand that teachers are more than likely not able to come to the phone or to meet parents at the office without notice, as they may be engaged in teaching a class or attending meetings. In these cases, arrangements can be made for your call to be returned, or for a time to meet.
