At Eimeo Road SS we view communication as an important aspect to creating a safe and harmonious space for children to learn and play. For this reason, everyone needs to be clear on their responsibilities, where they can go and what they can expect to happen if they have a concern or complaint. The school also recognises a need for concerns to be dealt with quickly and in a professional manner. To achieve this, we need the support of the community in following the most appropriate channels for addressing and responding to concerns.
Parents are responsible for communicating their concerns in an appropriate, respectful way. All concerns and complaints will be responded to as soon as possible. It is extremely important to maintain confidentiality and whilst it might be tempting for a parent to gather opinions of other parents on a matter of concern, it is fair and courteous to raise the matter with the teacher and school. Some concerns may be based on a misunderstanding and can be quickly resolved through respectful conversation.
For matters concerning the classroom, playground or education of your child, please contact the Class Teacher, in the first instance, to organise a meeting time or to seek advice. Please remember that in the time before school and during school the teacher's focus is with the children so they will be unable to help at this time.
For further discussion or concerns about school decisions, the Principal or Deputy Principals can be contacted. Please contact the office for an appointment. Another forum for raising concerns of a whole school nature is through the monthly Parents' and Citizens' Association Meeting.
