Have you ever experienced the frustration of not being able to speak to the right person when you need to?

We aim for that never to be the case at Windmill.

  • Class teachers are all happy to communicate with families through ClassDojo
    • We will try to give you a response on the same day if you message us within normal office hours
  • The school office is open for visits and phone calls between 8:00am and 4:30pm every day
    • Unlike some schools, you will hardly ever go through to voicemail.  We answer the phone promptly and try to answer your query straightaway
    • Please be friendly with our office team... they are some of the most friendly people we know!
  • If you need a meeting with a specific member of staff, we will arrange one as soon as possible, at a time to suit you - even bringing a teacher out of class if necessary

We are proactive in our communications - through ClassDojo, ParentPay, Windmill Weekly newsletter and social media (FacebookInstagram, Twitter, YouTube)

We report to parents termly about pupils' progress, arranging meetings at school between parents and teachers in November and March.  Those are 15-minute meetings scheduled between 8:00am and 5:00pm, with the child attending too.  Please try and be there for those.  Children get very disappointed if you don't come!

Please also refer to the Communications Policy in the Policies section of the website, and the Assessment information page.
