Comms at DBCPS
Communicating with our Families
In addition to our school website, we use a number of tools and platforms to communicate with the friends and families of DBCPS.
We will continue to use our texting service so please ensure that any changes to mobile numbers are shared with us. Occasionally we will use abbreviated words in our texts as they are limited to 140 characters.
We launched an official Facebook page for DBCPS, which can be found here: www.facebook.com/dbcps – please ‘Like’ and follow our page for regular updates and reminders. As this is a more open platform we initially intend to use it for sharing information about upcoming events, letters going home, updates to our website and resources, questionnaires and so on.
We understand that there are many of our families on Facebook so we are hopeful this will be a positive way to increase awareness and communication between DBCPS and the local community. We encourage parents/families to interact with us on our Facebook page and will look to respond to comments on there in a timely manner. However, we kindly ask that any problems/concerns/issues you have still be directed to us via the usual channels (phone, office and email). We reserve the right to remove any negative, harassing or inappropriate comments that may appear.
Our school calendar provides information on upcoming events. You can also subscribe to this calendar on your mobile devices or home computers by clicking the iCal button at the bottom.
We use the email service to send letters and forms directly to your email inbox. Copies of any correspondence sent via email will be available in the office as well. Please ensure your correct email address is made available to us.
We have two displays that we use to share reminders, information for parents, display videos and other multimedia content. You’ll find one in the main reception area (outside our Nursery) and a kiosk in the main playground.
Contacting the School and Staff
You can use our main contact page to send the school office a message or you can call us on 01322 424021.
We also have staff pages for our EYFS, Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and School Teams. On these pages you can contact the school leadership team or the school office directly, as well as get to know the names and faces of staff here at DBCPS. You can also contact our Family Liaison Officer directly.
