Given the seriousness of this issue, I have dedicated this week’s newsletter to highlighting the significant concerns about being able to get in contact with you as parents and named contacts. There will always be a very good reason for contacting you during the school day. This may include:
An emergency illness or medical issue which we require your support with, or
A need to contact you to gain permission for a specific issue
Over the last half term we have faced increased difficulty reaching the main point of contact, or even any of the named contacts, for a growing number of students. This is a major concern in ensuring there is always someone available if there is an emergency or key information that needs to be shared. Please be aware that you are the parent/carers with parental responsibility and we act in “loco- parentis”. In the event of an emergency I am sure that you would want to be informed asap. At the moment we are finding contact numbers/ email addresses that are inaccurate because we have not been informed of a change in details.
I realise this may be due to strict policies at your place of work; you may not be able to answer your phone/voicemail/text. So we urge you to provide us with the contact information of a person within your extended family with parental responsibility so that they can answer the phone without these barriers.
This is vital and without apology. To legally obtain any updates you will receive an email asking you to check and, if necessary, update your contact details.
The instructions are explained below; I urge you to spend a few moments in checking the contact details we have for you are correct for the well-being of your child/children.
Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring we are always able to get in touch.
