Effective communication is at the heart of an effective school. We cannot stress how important it is for us all to be able to communicate in an open, honest but respectful and non-threatening manner. We all have a shared, common purpose – ensuring the very best for every pupil. We communicate with parents through planners, the school app, the website and the weekly newsletter. 


A senior member of staff will be on duty on a daily basis from 8:45am to 9:00am and again from 3:10pm to 3:20pm. Our school family support worker (Mrs Doherty) is also available at the both the beginning and end of the school day from Tuesday-Friday.


At times during the year you may have specific queries you wish to discuss with school. For the majority of occasions these will be most effectively dealt with by talking to your child’s class teacher. Please contact your child’s class teacher directly to arrange a convenient appointment. There may be occasions however where you wish to talk to a senior teacher. Mrs Donnellan is the phase leader for EYFS/KS1 - Reception, Y1 and Y2. Miss Ingram is the phase leader for KS2 - Y3,Y4, Y5 and Y6. Below is a table of the senior teacher most effectively placed to deal with your query.


Having spoken to a senior teacher please arrange an appointment to see Mrs McKinney, Headteacher if you wish to discuss your query further. Thank you.

Equality Statement


Our School Commitment

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:


  •  Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.


At St Alban’s School, in line with our Catholic ethos:

  • We try to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and respectfully.
  • We want to make sure that our school is a safe and secure place for everyone.
  • We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them the same.
  • We aim to make sure that no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their:


  • Sex
  • Race
  • Disability
  • religion or belief
  • sexual orientation
  • gender reassignment
  • pregnancy or maternity
  • Age (when employing adults)


  • We recognise that some pupils need extra support to help them to achieve and be successful.
  • We try to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and are involved in our decisions, especially pupils, parents and those of us who can be treated less favourably.
  • Our aim is for all children to fulfil their potential and achieve the best they can.
  • We welcome our duties to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations (under the Equality Act 2010)
  • We also welcome the emphasis of Ofsted inspections on the importance of accelerating the progress of pupils from groups who are underachieving.


As part of this we will:

  •  Publish information every year about our school population
  • Outline how we have due regard for equality
  •  Publish equality objectives to show how we plan to tackle particular inequalities and improve what we do
