Absolutely! At CGS we have an open door policy and welcome contact from home. If it's easier to correspond via email then please make that known to the class teacher.
What is the best time to talk to the teacher if I have a question?
The best time to phone and speak with a teacher is after work as there is more time available to talk.
If it is very urgent then please leave a message in reception and the relevant teacher will phone back as soon as they possibly can... it's normally fast!
How can parents get involved?
