Parents & Community


We believe passionately in a positive relationship between parents and carers, staff and pupils. We strive to ensure staff, parents, pupils and the community have a shared understanding of what we are aiming to achieve at Civitas Academy. If there is any further information you require please do not hesitate to contact the school or talk to a member of staff.

You can find information and updates about Civitas Academy on the weekly bulletins.

The Communication Policy can be found on the 'Policies' page. The main table can be found below.

Your query 

Who you need to talk to 

How to get in touch 

Anything to do with your individual child:  their progress, behaviour or something that has happened on the school playground.  

Your child’s Class Teacher is always the first port of call for any of these queries; they may then involve the Phase Leader or other member of the Senior Leadership team if necessary.  

Phase Leader for Early Years (Reception): TBC 

Phase Leader for Key Stage 1 (Year 1-2) Miss Boman 

Phase Leader for Lower Key Stage 2 (Year 3-4): Miss Sturt-Hammond Phase Leader for Upper Key Stage 2 (Year 5– 6): Mrs Rapley 

 

Make an appointment via the school office or drop them a short note which can be passed to them.  

 

Please note that each teacher will have different times available due to after school clubs and meetings etc.  

 

Please try to avoid ‘catching’ your child’s teacher in the morning as they need to make a prompt start to the day.  

Messages about medical appointments, childcare arrangements, who is collecting your child etc.  

School Admin:  Mrs Phillips 

  • A brief note/email is best for these matters. Mrs Phillips will then ensure Class Teachers know and we have a record in case of any problems.
