Any Worries? Come and Talk!

Here at Grange Community Nursery and Primary School you don’t need to wait until Parents’ Evening before reporting a concern. We think it is best to share any worries sooner rather than later, so that small problems don’t become much larger issues.


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.

School Office

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.

Class Teachers

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.

Head of School & Assistant Headteacher

You can also speak to the Head of School, Miss Albiston, or assistant headteacherm 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, Miss Higgins.

Executive Headteacher

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.
