The school seeks to maintain an open dialogue with parents and local community and seeks to be accessible and responsive to any enquiry which comes in.
In order to communicate effectively with our stakeholders, we operate with the following means of communication:
The school website is overseen by the Headteacher and regular updates on school events and processes mean that it is kept up-to-date and in line with DfE expectations.
The school Twitter account (@friaryschool) is again overseen by the Headteacher and features regular tweets which are seen by over 1,000 followers and related impressions.
The school newsletter is published on a termly basis and is available via the school website and school reception.
The school sends out regular letters to parents related to specific events and these are also shared via the school website.
The school also sends out regular text reminders related to specific events.
The school operates Year specific parent evenings, targeted half-termly Achievement Concern Evenings (ACE) and focused events relating to aspirations, options, UCAS, etc.
The school staff regularly meet with parents on individual matters and appointments can be arranged via school reception.
The school staff are readily available at a wide range of community events, from visits to primary school to performances at Lichfield Cathedral, business partnership meetings to corporate events, PTA to governor meetings, and on supervision duties at the end of each day.
If you require any further information about our means of communication or want to speak to a member of staff, please contact Leisa Hoare, School Receptionist on 01543 267 400 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
