Communication

At Wood End School we try to create an atmosphere where parents/carers always feel welcome, and where staff and parents can talk openly and honestly. Parents/carers’ opinions, support and involvement are highly valued. 

We actively encourage parents/carers to help with activities such as cooking, art, reading, sports and other extra curricular activities.

Parent volunteers who regularly help in school (e.g. 4 or more times a month) are asked to complete the online DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) process.  We recognise the key role that parents/carers play in the education of their children and through close partnership; we aim to provide the very best education possible. 

For more information please visit the parent volunteer page.

We are committed to building successful working partnerships with our families. Part of this is maintaining clear communication between school and home in a range of ways. Please see the table below which explains who to approach with a query and how to get in touch with them.

Your Query Who you need to talk to How to get in touch
Anything to do with your individual child e.g. Their progress, behaviour or something that has happened in the school playground. Your child's Class Teacher is always the first port of call for any of the queries; they may then involve the Key Stage Leader, Deputy Headteacher or Headteacher if necessary. Teachers are at their classroom doors after school if you need a quick word with them.  For a more in depth discussion, please make an appointment with the teacher for a mutually convenient time via admin@woodend.herts.sch.uk
