Pyramid of Contact

We understand that when you have a concern about your child as a parent you want this to be dealt with as quickly and as efficiently as possible, it is therefore natural for you to feel that speaking to the Principal will allow your problem to be dealt with as quickly efficiently as possible.

However, in an academy of this size, it is impossible for the Principal to know every child on such a detailed level whilst also running the school effectively. 

We have therefore set-up a structure where each child has a Head of Year who is responsible for their academic progress and pastoral welfare within the academy.

This member of staff works closely with your child's Academic Mentor and often knows your child best, and is therefore often more able to use this knowledge to rectify the situation more quickly.

Reception have therefore have been asked to book meetings with Head of Years in the first instance before a meeting can be booked with the Vice-Principal or Principal.

If once you have had a meeting with your child's Head of Year and you feel that the situation is not resolved, the next level of contact will be with the Pastoral Leadership team and reception will book you a meeting with either Mr. D. Root or Mr L. Ransome.

If once these meetings have taken place you feel that the issue has not been resolved, the matter will be referred to the Vice-Principal and/or ultimately a meeting with the Principal.
