We firmly believe that support, encouragement and involvement of parents and carers in the education and development of children is key to their progress and success during their time at St Philip’s Primary Catholic School, Arundel.
Our partnership approach is achieved using a comprehensive mix of monitoring and recording children’s progress and keeping parents fully involved in that process, as well as informed of all events and occasions that are part of school life.

For up-to-date information, parents/carers should ensure they regularly check the whiteboard on the wall at the school entrance. This features information on activities within the school each day and also provides notice of forthcoming events, as well as seasonal advice, including weather warnings.
The office staff are available throughout the day to handle enquiries, in person and by telephone, email or letter. You can also leave a note at the office if you would like to pass on a message to any of the school staff.
We also use ParentMail, a dedicated schools’ email system, to communicate information, including the regular School Newsletter, which contains news and details of events at the school, including term and holiday dates.
Please ensure we always have your most up-to-date contact details.
Your child’s class teacher should be your first point of contact, unless they are the subject of your concern. The best method to contact your child’s teacher is by leaving a note for them with School Office. We will then ensure that an appointment is made for a telephone call or a face-to-face meeting.
If the class teacher is unable to address your enquiry to your satisfaction, you should then approach the Head Teacher.
The Governors and Clerk may be contacted via the School Office.
