Communication Guidelines

At Bayswater we value regular communication between the school and our families.  Parents/carers are encouraged to establish and maintain positive communication with teachers and the school. Teachers are available via email or using the teachers preferred platform of; Connect, See Saw or Class Dojo.

Parents/carers should discuss issues and concerns as soon as they occur. Interviews with teachers can be arranged, for a mutually convenient time, by making an appointment. Where there are tandem teachers in a class an appointment should be made with only one of the teachers.

Staff wellbeing is a priority at Bayswater and our teachers need to be able to ‘switch off’ from work and maintain a healthy work-life balance.   Every effort will be made to respond to parent enquiries, generally during school hours, within a reasonable timeframe; for example, 48 hours from reading a communication on a workday. Teaching staff, including Administration, are not required to respond to communications outside of their normal working hours (8.00am – 5.00pm). If further information is required please see the Department’s ‘Talking With my School’ document, and Communication Protocols on our school website.

To communicate a child’s absence from school please use the email Bayswater.PS.Absentees@education.wa.edu.au.   Teachers may be cc’d into the email.   A response to confirm receive of the email will come from administration but not from the class teacher.

If unable to satisfactorily resolve any issue with the classroom teacher, parents/guardians are asked to make an appointment to see the Principal or Deputy Principal. The Administration can be contacted by email at Bayswater.PS.@education.wa.edu.au or by phone on 9462 6600.
