Parents / Carers: A Guide to Communicating with Newfield School
Below are the standard communication practices we would ask you to follow:
Who to contact:
If you need to report a pupil absence, please contact the main office on 0151 934 2991
Office and Finance Queries
If you have a general school or finance query, please contact the school office on 0151 934 2991
If you have a specific query about a subject, please contact the pupil’s subject teacher in the first instance. If that does not resolve the matter, please contact Miss Neeson, Senior Manager in charge of Teaching and Learning.
If you have a pastoral query or concern, please contact the pupil’s form tutor in the first instance. If that does not resolve the matter, contact Mr Newall, Senior Manager in charge of Behaviour and Safety.
The school telephone number is 0151 934 2991. The school reception opening hours are: Monday to Friday - 8.00 am to 4.30pm. Outside of these hours, please leave a clear message on the answer phone. The message will be picked up the following morning.
If you telephone the school and ask to speak with the relevant person, please note that it the member of staff isn't available, it will be helpful if you leave a message with reception, with the pupil’s name and a brief indication of the query, your name and contact details.
Please note that teaching staff often have a full day of lessons timetabled, as well as break / lunch supervision duty, internal and external meetings and training sessions. It may therefore not be possible for a member of staff to return your call or reply to your email on the same day. Newfield School staff will endeavour to respond to parental queries within 48 hours (covering working days only). Note however that any serious safeguarding issue will be dealt with as a priority.
Parents / Carers are always welcome in school however It is always advisable to make an appointment first, so you can ensure that you meet with the person you want to talk to. When you have made an appointment, please aim to arrive on time and report to reception on arrival. Our office staff will help you to sign in and give you a visitors badge, which should be worn while on school premises.
