Meet the Team
We very much value communication with our Aston Clinton School families. In order to support us in responding to your queries, feedback or concerns as swiftly as possible, we ask that you please consider who is the most appropriate member of staff to which you want your communication to be directed. This is to ensure that we can best meet your child’s learning, emotional and physical needs.
In the first instance, we ask that you email the school office via firstname.lastname@example.org, clearly stating who your email is addressed to and what the email is regarding in the subject line. For all general enquiries, including any medical related issues, you can email the main reception and they will help to put you in touch with the relevant member of staff. Queries of an educational nature can often be promptly addressed when directed to the class teacher.
Staff will reply to your email as soon as they are able to, in line with our policy of two working days. 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. In the instance that you require further support, we have put the following information together as a quick guide to ensure that your enquiry reaches the correct member of staff:
