How to contact your child’s class teacher
Your child’s class teacher can be contacted in various ways. They can communicate with you via earwig, email or phone calls. You can leave a message at the office for your child’s class teacher to call you back. This will likely be once all children have left for the day.
We would love to see what you have been learning at home. Parents can “add a record” onto their child’s timeline. Below is our guide to using Earwig.
