Any Worries? Come and Talk!
The best way to get some meaningful time for proper discussion with any of the teachers is to arrange an appointment via the office. It is fine to use e-mail, telephone or to call in to request an appointment. If you have any worries please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
For lots of things, the school office can be the best place to get the information you need. We have a very skilled team who will do their very best to help. They will also arrange appointments with other members of staff.
School Business Manager
Mrs Smith is our School Bursar and is often the best person to talk if you have any financial concerns or questions. Arrangements for payments for trips and ‘free-school-meals’ are regular examples of the types of issues with which Mrs Smith can provide assistance.
Usually the best place to start to resolve a worry about anything concerned with learning, is by talking to the class teacher. We have a brilliant team of highly skilled professionals at Grange Community Nursery and Primary School. It is not necessary to wait for a Parents’ Evening. If you have a question or concern about any aspect of your child’s life in school, you can make an appointment to get things resolved quickly.
Pastoral Support Manager
We also have a dedicated and qualified Pastoral Support Manager, Mrs Rock, who is often involved in all sorts of nurture and supportive care work, in partnership with class-teachers and parents, to help remove any barriers to learning, including issues with confidence, self-esteem or friendship difficulties. Mrs Rock often meets with parents during the school day.
Teaching Support Assistants
We have a large team of learning support assistants, who are an essential part of our educational provision at Grange. They assist teaching and learning in very varied ways and work with lots of children in all year groups.
You can also speak to the Assistant Heads, Miss Albiston and Mr Morris, who will also be very happy to help to resolve any difficulties. Our assistant heads are very experienced educationalists who regularly deal with the most complex and sensitive issues affecting children and families in school.
Inclusion, Special Educational Needs and Disability
All children require an education which is carefully tailored to their individual needs. We are very proud of our skills in including everyone and make sure every child meets their full potential. Our coordinator in this work, working closely with class teachers is our Inclusion Leader, Ms James.
Our Executive Headteacher, Mrs Williams, is also happy to meet with parents to address any worries or concerns. Mrs Williams is a Local Leader of Education and has worked in primary education for 24 years. She has been a primary school headteacher in four schools over the last 11 years.
Remember – no problem is too small. We are always here to help and support.
