Communication and Reporting

Communication

Parents are always welcome to visit St Thomas More's to speak with the Principal or teachers. 
When free and open communication is maintained, any perceived problems are more readily resolved.

For practical reasons it is essential that an appointment be made for all such meetings except in an emergency.
The Office Manager can arrange an appointment with the Principal or Assistant Principal. 

Appointments to see a child's teachers should be made out of teaching hours, and can be done via email.

 

Reporting
