A specialist SEN school for secondary aged boys with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs

How to contact us

We believe the best way to support young people be happy and achieve their best at school is through the partnership between school and home.

There are times when you will want to get in touch with us at school – this might be to talk through a subject worry, to talk about home learning, to share things that are happening at home, to flag a concern or worry or simply to update your contact information.

Please note it is the responsibility of parents/carers to keep the school informed of any changes to the details we hold for your child and it is therefore essential you keep us up to date with any changes to the records we hold for them. This includes information regarding joining and leaving the armed forces. Armed forces updates should include parents (or step parents that currently live with the pupil).

To share successes or to flag a worry or concern with your child

This might be achievement or progress across subjects, sharing things that are happening at home, to discuss a concern about your child’s health, happiness or friendships, to share a success.

Please contact their Tutor in the first instance. Tutors have regular and frequent dialogue with members of the senior leadership team so messages can be passed on for discussion.

The school has five Designated Safeguarding Leads who are regularly on site. Please do make it clear if you need to speak to a safeguarding lead at any point.

LWS Safeguarding team:

Christopher Berry – Lead DSL

Rebecca Lawley – DSL

Mustafa Sulo – DSL

Stephanie Simpson – DSL

Claire Knight – DSL

To discuss anything subject related

This might be achievement or progress in the subject, a question about the progress report, a query about the curriculum or the topic being taught or about home learning etc.

Please contact the teacher either by email or phone, and if necessary set up a meeting.

We always endeavour to get back to parents as soon as we possibly can, this is not always immediately because of teaching commitments.
