We update our website daily and we hope you’ll find it helpful in answering any queries or questions you may have. Please see our calendar for upcoming event dates, read our blogs to see what we’ve been doing, and check out our Media Gallery to view our photos/videos/listen to our podcasts. You can also find ways to support your child’s learning at home as well as accessing a range of resources to help. Your child’s homework is also uploaded here each week, so if they lose their original copy, they can print another one from here.
If you have a non-urgent query, then please feel free to send us an email. Mrs Deal and Miss Deal check our emails regularly throughout the day and if they don’t know the answer to your query, then they will immediately forward your e-mail to someone who does so we should have a reply back to you in no time at all! For emails which require an investigation or further follow up, we would typically respond to these within ten working days. You can e-mail us at [email protected] or by using the online form on the ‘Contact Us’ page. We often send out Headteacher’s reports and newsletters via e-mail. If you would like to join our mailing list, please make sure we have your email address.
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to contact us is via telephone. The phone lines are open between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm. If you call outside of these times, please feel free to leave us a message on our answer-phone and someone will return your call as soon as possible. If you change your telephone number at any point in the year, please make sure you update our school office in case we need to contact you urgently. Our phone number is: 01633 259 563
We often send out letters to inform parents of important news, notices, events and school trips. Letters are usually sent electronically via a link in a text message or email. We also send out a half-termly newsletter by email which is sent at the end of each half-term. Most letters sent out are automatically saved here for ease of access. We don’t often send out paper letters unless we’re notifying you of a school educational visit or special event. These letters will be given to your child at the end of the day, so please make sure you check their bag regularly to ensure you don’t miss any important information. If you’d like to send us a letter, you can write to us at St. Julian’s Primary School, Beaufort Road, Newport, NP19 7UB. Please mark clearly on the envelope whom the letter is for the attention of.
We regularly send out text messages to update parents with important information and reminders of our upcoming events. If you are a parent of a pupil at St. Julian’s Primary and currently do not receive our text messages, please speak to Mrs Arnold or Ms O’Donnell in the office, who will be able to add you to our mailing list. Please feel free to contact us via text but only do so if it is a non-urgent query as we may not always be able to respond immediately. We can only receive text messages from numbers we have stored on our system.
St. Julian’s Primary School uses the ‘School Gateway’ to share information with parents. Download the app (Apple/Android) or log in using the website. You can receive messages, update your information and soon view assessment information. Please note: if you have downloaded the School Gateway app, you will automatically receive messages through the app rather than as text messages to your phone.
Social Media – Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo, YouTube
We love twitter and we try to tweet as often as possible. It’s a great way for us to instantly share our amazing achievements with parents and the public. If you like being the first to find out the latest news and information, then twitter is a definite must for you! You don’t even need a twitter account, although it allows you to ‘follow’ us, if you do! To view our twitter feed, click here or follow @StJuliansPri from your twitter account.
Similar to Twitter (but a bit more personal!), Dojo Class Story allows each class teacher to post updates, pictures and messages to parents. This will allow you to link your account with your child’s Dojo account, so you can keep track of their reward points and also view their ‘Class Story’. It’s really simple to use… Download the Dojo app for iPhone/iPad or Android device and then ask us for your child’s invite code. We can also send you an email invitation if it’s easier. Please contact us if you have a child in the school and have not yet set up your Dojo parent account. Find out more here.*Please note, we do not currently use the private messaging feature within Dojo Class story so if you need to ask us a question, please contact the office.
Sometimes, it’s better to communicate face-to-face. We try to make sure that there is always someone available to speak to if you have any concerns or queries. Our teachers come out onto the yard first thing in the morning and come back out with their class at the end of the day. If it’s a quick chat you require, feel free to catch your child’s teacher on the yard. If your query or concern requires a bit more time, you can make an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher by contacting the school office. If you need to speak to a member of our Leadership Team, please make an appointment with the school office, and Mr. Rees, Mrs. Orford or Mr. Mansfield will be happy to meet with you.
