Excellent communication is important to us at Whitchurch Primary School.
Mae cyfathrebu rhagorol yn bwysig iawn i ni yn Ysgol Gynradd Whitchurch.
We update our website daily and we hope you’ll find it helpful in answering any queries or questions you may have. Please see our calendar for upcoming event dates, Gallery/News to view our photos and videos. You can also find ways to support your child’s learning at home as well as accessing a range of resources to help.
If you have a non-urgent query, then please feel free to send us an email.
Our Administration Team check our emails regularly throughout the day and if they don’t know the answer to your query, then they will immediately forward your e-mail to someone who does so we should have a reply back to you in no time at all! You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the online form on the ‘Contact Us’ page. We often send out newsletters via e-mail using the ParentMail system. If you would like to join our mailing list, please provide our Administration Team with your e-mail address.
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to contact us is via telephone. You should usually be able to get through to us between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm. If you call outside of these times, please feel free to leave us a message on our answer-phone and someone will return your call as soon as possible. If you change your telephone number at any point in the year, please make sure you update our school office in case we need to contact you urgently. Our phone number is: 02920 623441.
We sometimes send out letters to inform parents of important news, notices, events and educational visits. Letters will be given to your child at the end of the day, so please make sure you check their bag regularly to ensure you don’t miss any important information. If you’d like to send us a letter, you can write to us at Whitchurch Primary School, Erw Las, Whitchurch, Cardiff, CF14 1NL. Please mark clearly on the envelope whom the letter is for the attention of.
We welcome communication in both Welsh and English.
Text Messages :
We sometimes send out text messages to update parents with important information and reminders of our upcoming events. If you are a parent of a pupil at Whitchurch Primary and currently do not receive our text messages, please speak to our Administration Team in the office, who will be able to add you to our mailing list. Please be aware that we cannot accept incoming text messages.
Twitter / Facebook :
We love Twitter and Facebook and we try to tweet/post as often as possible. It’s a great way for us to instantly share our amazing achievements with parents and the public. If you like being the first to find out the latest news and information, then Twitter/Facebook is a definite must for you! You don’t even need a twitter account, although it allows you to ‘follow’ us, if you do! To view our twitter feed, click here or follow @whitchurchprm from your twitter account.
Sometimes, it’s better to communicate face-to-face. We try to make sure that there is always someone available to speak to if you have any concerns or queries. If it’s a quick chat you require, feel free to catch your child’s teacher at the start or the end of the school day. If your query or concern requires a bit more time, you can make an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher by contacting the school office. If you need to speak to a member of our Leadership & Support Team, please make an appointment with the school office.
