COMMUNICATIONS STRUCTURE - PRIORITY POINTS OF CONTACT
All visitors to the Academy are requested to abide by the Visitors’ Code of Conduct at all times.
Visiting the Academy
Please be advised that where necessary, an appointment can be made in advance to see an appropriate member of staff. Please be aware that staff may only see parents and carers by prior appointment. Please do not visit the Academy and expect to be seen by a particular member of staff without a prior appointment. Sometimes parents and carers may be asked to see a different member of staff who is better placed to deal with the issue raised, rather than the original member of staff requested.
The main phone number into the Academy is 0117 9864791. This will be answered between 8.15am and 4.15pm Monday to Thursday and 8.15am to 3.45pm on Friday (there will be an answerphone to leave a message outside of these times). Your call will initially go through an automated system which will give the following options:
- Report a student absence or for any attendance related queries
- Report a staff absence
- Contact the Finance Office
- Contact the Learning Recovery Team (please note that LRC staff work directly with students during the school day and you may therefore need to leave a voicemail message which will be responded to by an appropriate member of the team)
- Contact the school kitchen
- Hold the line to speak to a member of the Reception Team
For queries regarding Free School Meals, school trip payments or any Finance issues, please contact Mrs C Norman direct on 01179 161108.
