Communications Policy

Parent-to-School Communication

Please note that no parent may see an educator without making an appointment. Parents who “pop in” for a chat can disrupt classroom time, which is not fair to the educator or the other learners in the class.

If there is anything that you would like to discuss, please follow the route indicated below and only go “higher” up the ladder should you require additional information or assistance:

  1. The class Educator
  2. The Grade Head
  3. The Subject Head
  4. The Deputy Principal
  5. The Principal

There are several ways to make an appointment as well as to communicate with the staff:

Telephone

The school switchboard numbers are 011 706 1263/4

Email

Emails may be sent directly to staff, and your class educator will provide you with their email address. However, please do NOT send any urgent messages in this manner in case there is a delay on the server. 

School-to-Parent Communication

Communication is fundamental to effective partnership with our parents and the success of learners. We firmly believe in creating a school environment that will improve the performance of learners as well as the involvement of parents. Bryanston Primary will connect with the parents using the following channels:

D6 Connect

See below for more information

Newsletter

This is a vital tool for the school to be able to communicate news, sports results, events and other important information to parents. The newsletter is published weekly on this site and can be found here, as well as via a link on the d6 Communicator.

SMS

In the case of time-sensitive communications (for example, extramural cancellations due to weather, etc) the school will occasionally send SMS messages to the parents. Please ensure that the school has your correct mobile number to facilitate this crucial form of communication.

d6 Connect

Commiting to our vision of improving communication and to make it as easy as possible for our parents, we are pleased to introduce the d6 Connect application to you.
