Contact us

Please remember that Governors deal with the strategic aspects of the school, not the operational. So if you have a concern with your child or any other day to day running of the school you will need to speak directly with the school, the class teacher or the headteacher. 

Should you wish to find out more about the work of the governing body with a view to becoming a governor or if you have any concerns or suggestions to make, then there are a number of ways you can contact us 

Clerk to Governors  

Andrew Thomas - andrewthomas@bevendean.brighton-hove.sch.uk 
 
Informal contact

If you would like to have an informal chat with any of the governors, please contact the School office with your phone number or email address and they will arrange for a governor to contact you. As governors are not able to act individually they will always refer your comments on to the Chair and the whole governing body. 
 
Parent Governors

You may also be able to find a parent governor in the playground either before or after school and you are welcome to approach them informally with suggestions, comments or concerns. However, they will arrange to contact you again to let you know what is being done. To find out who your parent governors are please go to our "About us" page. 
 
Chair of Governors

You can write to the Chair of Governors through the school office. Office staff will ensure the Chair receives your letter. They will acknowledge your letter as soon as possible followed by a considered response either by phone, email or letter - whichever is the most appropriate. Alternatively, you may send correspondence to the clerk of governors.  

Complaints 

If you have a complaint you will need to follow all the stages of the school’s complaints process and this will always mean contacting the most appropriate member of staff in the first instance to reach an appropriate solution.
