Communication

The academy office is open from 8.30am until 4.00pm. 

Telephone Number: 01403 733254

E-mail: office@southwaterinfants.co.uk

Please use the above number and e-mail address to make contact with any member of staff.

We send letters and other information home via pmx.parentmail where possible.  This is a very efficient way of communication, especially in adverse weather as we can let you know if the academy is closed.  If you do not have access to the internet we can send day to day information home via your child’s bookbag.

We send regular newsletters home keeping you informed of events in academy life. Please keep a watchful eye on your e-mails and in your child’s book bag for newsletters and information. Read them and respond; discuss the contents with your child showing him/her that you know what is happening during the academy day. We hold Parent Consultation Evenings every term and Curriculum meetings throughout the year. In addition to these formal times, the teachers are available before the teaching day or, more usually, after the end of the teaching day to discuss any aspect of a child’s progress.  We also hold regular meetings advising parents how to support their children in behaviour, social relationships and learning.

We are always pleased to welcome parents and members of the community who can help in a wide variety of ways, eg reading groups, cooking, sewing, number games, art and craft activities. Do please offer your services if you can spare a little time on a regular basis. These arrangements are subject to a DBS check. Class teacher will guide you and will appreciate any talent or experience you have to share.
