Parental Contact

Successful education is based on a supportive and co-operative partnership between home and school. Please do not hesitate to contact the school at any time should there be any matter causing concern. We are committed to open communication between home and school. It is important not to let little concerns build up into serious mistrust or irritation. We are as keen to see things run smoothly as you are.

Parent Contact Details

It is essential that we have a current mobile phone number and email address for the parents in our records. We use text messaging and emails to communicate quickly and conveniently with parents –‘rugby match cancelled due to weather’, ‘coach delayed in traffic’, that kind of thing. We ask all parents to let us have their mobile telephone numbers on the understanding that they will be used for this purpose and, if necessary, for contacting parents in an emergency.

The Emergency Contact Form is available to download from the Parent Forms webpage.

Staff Email Addresses

Appointments with the teaching staff can be made directly with the form or subject teacher by email, using the standard formula:
firstname.surname@donhead.org.uk

For the teacher's name please refer to our Governors & Staff webpage.

Appointments with the Headmaster should be made through the Headmaster's PA at headmasterpa@donhead.org.uk.

Reporting to Parents

We have a range of strategies that keep parents fully informed of their child’s progress in school. These include both written and verbal reports, the homework diary system and the opportunity for parents to contact the school if they have concerns with their child’s progress in any area of the curriculum.

For more details please visit the Reporting to Parents webpage.

Semper Magis Newsletter

The Semper Magis Newsletter is the school newsletter and is emailed to parents each Friday and posted on the website. This supplements the Termly Calendar and contains the most up-to-date information. Please read it carefully – it contains the answers to many questions that you might otherwise have to telephone to ask.
