At Edward Peake, relationships are very important to us. We are committed to building successful working partnerships with parents/carers and maintaining clear communication between home and school is a vital part of this.

We communicate with parents in a range of formal and informal ways:

  • Letters
  • Phone calls
  • Face-to-Face meetings
  • Text alerts and messages via School Comms
  • Messages on the school website
  • Newsletters
  • Parent consultation evenings
  • Subject-specific / Year group specific meetings
  • Social media:

The half-termly editions of Peake Post keep parents up-to-date with what happens in school; activities, term dates, invitations to events, Parents’ Meetings etc. Newsletters are posted on the school website in the last week of each half-term.

From time to time parents may naturally have concerns about an aspect of their child’s education. Often those concerns will resolve themselves, but on occasion, parents may feel that the issue will need the school’s help to be resolved. As partners in a child’s education, the school wishes to work with parents in the resolution of problems and the Complaints Policy is designed to show what steps may be taken. Please ensure that the steps are followed as outlined in the policy.

The Communications and Complaints Policy may be found on the school website under the statutory information tab.
