Contacting Staff

From time to time parents may need to contact the school in order to:

  • discuss the progress or welfare of their child
  • express concerns about actions of another student
  • enquire about school policy or practice
  • seek information about the actions of a member of staff

It is necessary to have procedures in place that will help to solve problems as soon as possible.

The following guidelines aim to:

  • provide a guide in order that concerns are dealt with in an open and fair manner
  • ensure that the rights of students, teachers and parents are respected and upheld
  • support sensitivity and confidentiality
  • help reach an agreed solution
  • address emergent issues within a realistic timeframe





The academic progress of own child

  • Contact the child's teacher either by note, by phone or in person to arrange a mutually suitable time to discuss the issues. (Teachers are unavailable once the morning bell has rung and students are entering classes.)

The welfare of own child

  • For minor issues directly contact your child's teacher to clarify information
  • For more serious concerns, contact the school's office. State the nature of the concern and arrange a mutually suitable time to talk with the class teacher or an appropriate staff member.
  • When informing the school about a change of address, telephone number, emergency contact, custody details, health issues etc. please contact the school office.

Actions of other students

  • Contact the class teacher for a classroom problem.
  • Contact an assistant principal or deputy principal for playground problems.

School Policy or Practice

  • Contact the school's office. State the nature of the concern and make a mutually convenient appointment to see the principal, deputy principal and/or appropriate member of staff.

Actions of a Staff Member

  • Contact the office and state concerns to a member of the school executive or principal.
  • Arrange to meet directly with the principal and if appropriate, the staff member concerned.


The home/school relationships nurtured and expected within the Wadalba Community School community are respectful, professional and mutually supportive. If a situation becomes unacceptable and aggressive, threatening or if violent behaviours become apparent, the principal (or nominee) has the legal authority under the ‘Inclosed Lands Act' to:

  • direct the person to immediately leave the grounds
  • call the police to remove the person should he/she refuse
  • withdraw future permission (by letter) for the person to enter the grounds without permission of the principal
  • seek further legal avenues

N.B. It is never appropriate for any parent to directly approach another person's child while at school to discuss a concern. Every child has the right to feel safe and protected at school.
