Who should I talk to?

The most important contact you have in school is your child’s class teacher. They should be the first person who you speak to regarding your child’s academic development or particular need. Class teachers are happy to speak to you directly after school. Please bear in mind it can be very difficult finding time before school to talk to parents as organising 30 children coming in to school requires a lot of attention!

We are very lucky at Malton Community Primary School to have a wide range of staff who lead different areas of our school. If you have a specific question, this page will help you find the person who will be able to help you most effectively.

Additional Support

Miss Glass coordinates the provision for Special Educational Needs across the school. This means class teachers may ask for support to ensure they are providing the best possible provision for all schools, but she also coordinates any extra support given to pupils to ensure they are making the best possible progress.

If your child has been identified as having specific extra needs, Miss Glass will contact you and may either identify herself as your primary contact in school or inform you of which member of staff will be available to support you and your child.

If you have concerns about the progress your child is making, please speak to your child’s class teacher. The teacher will then raise these concerns with Miss Glass who will orchestrate the provision made for your child. Please do not approach her directly.

Miss Glass leads our specialist earning support team who run interventions working with children with specific development needs. She also is working directly with parents, organising the ‘By Parents For Parents’ support group. Miss Glass is also spearheading our work to ensure we are a dyslexia friendly school.

Miss Glass may not always be available in school. The best way to contact her is to send and email to admin@maltonprimary.org with the subject marked ‘FAO: Miss Glass’

Behaviour

Mrs Kirk is in charge of our enhanced provision and also leads on behaviour in school. She is the final port of call before the headteacher with any concerns about behaviour. Parents should always speak to their child’s class teacher with any concerns, as this is the most effective way for us as a school to deal with any concerns. Staff will speak to Mrs Kirk for any support they may feel is required in due course.

Bugging/Bullying

Miss Anderson is the member of staff in charge of anti-bullying. She is focused on continuing to develop our excellent reputation as a school which does not have, or condone, any forms of bullying. Children are taught to discriminate between bugging and bullying, and are taught a variety of strategies to support themselves in any situation. As with any question about your child, the first port of call for any concern should be your child’s class teacher, as they are most effectively placed to deal with the situation quickly and effectively.

If you do feel that you need to speak to Miss Anderson directly, please be aware that Miss Anderson teaches full-time and therefore it is best if you are able to contact her via the school office to arrange an appointment. She will endeavour to see you as quickly as possible.
