Contacting Staff

Communications Guidance

We very much value feedback from our Misbourne families. In order to support us in responding to your queries, compliments or concerns, we ask that you please consider who is the most appropriate member of staff to contact, the timing of your email and when you can expect a response by. 

Staff will reply to your email as soon as they are able to, in line with our policy, within 48 hours of receiving your email (working days only). If your email is of a complex nature, the member of staff will send an email of acknowledgement within this timescale but may need longer to follow-up before sending a fuller response or arranging a meeting with you. We do not expect staff to read or respond to emails in the evenings, at weekends or during school holidays.
