Contacting School

At Archdeacon, we value our ‘open door policy’ as it allows us to form close bonds with children’s families. Parents should feel that, if they have a concern at any time, they are welcome to talk to a member of staff. This is initially the child’s class teacher, but other members of staff may be invited to the conversation as the need arises. Please note that the beginning of the school day is always very busy, so meetings will be arranged for well before the start of the school day or after the school day.

We appreciate that many of our parents work and that personal contact can be a challenge to arrange. If you have a concern about your child and are unable to come into school, please write a note in your child’s reading diary or pop a note into their book bags. Alternatively, an email can be sent to the school office at: for the attention of your child’s teacher. This will be passed onto the teacher. Teachers will aim to respond by telephoning you by the end of the day.

Please also see the following chart for more information, which we hope covers most eventualities.

If in doubt, Miss Lambe is usually available at the gate on most mornings to clarify how we can best support you and your family.

We thank you for your continued support.

Welcome to the Autumn Term 2020. Please note that physical tours of the school site for prospective Nursery and Reception parents will not take place this term. Virtual tours are under construction and further information about these will be available shortly.
