If you are a parent of a current student there are several possibilities:

Option 1

If a particular subject concerns you, write via letter/email or in the student planner (your son/daughter should then show their class teacher your message) or telephone and ask for the teacher to contact you and talk over the matter when convenient.  

Option 2

If your concern is more general or one of a social matter, write/telephone/ use student planner to ask your Tutor to contact you to arrange a time to talk the matter over.  

Option 3

You may want to email the school if you wish to communicate with the tutor or a subject teacher.  You can do this by using the following address: deerpark@deerparksecondary.org.  This email will be forwarded to the person best placed to deal with your question.  

Option 4

If you have a more serious concern or issue to raise you may like to contact the Director of Progress and Achievement (DoPA).  

Option 5 

If for any reason you wish to talk to a Senior Member of Staff, contact the school either by telephone/email/letter and a Senior Teacher will arrange to see you as soon as possible and, in an emergency, at very short notice.  

Option 6 

The Executive Headteacher/Headteacher are always pleased to meet with parents.  Should you find that after contact with other staff your concern remains, please contact either.  We are all concerned with helping individuals.   

Please note that the school will always endeavour to return phone calls or email within 24 hours and we will respond in writing as requested within 5-10 working days.
