Our friendly and efficient office staff; Jenni McKenzie and Sandie Hinkley answer general queries swiftly. The team can issue paper copies of any online documents, distribute holiday request forms, take details of any necessary medications, issue our complaints policy and make changes to key information (such as a new phone number or address).


Telephone: 0121 675 9833
Fax: 0121 675 9840


The office is open from 7:30am – 4:30pm daily. Messages can be left on our answer machine outside these hours.


Your child’s class teacher should be the first point of contact for any questions regarding your child’s learning and progress. The best time to catch class teachers for a quick chat is at the end of the day.


NB: teachers have very limited time on any given morning as they will be preparing to start their day; urgent messages can be relayed via the main office or to a member of our Pastoral Team (Mark Walker or Jayne Everill) who will, under normal circumstances, be available to talk to on the playgrounds at morning drop off. Teachers will happily meet with parents/carers for a longer meeting by appointment.
