Support for Parents

We are committed to ensuring that your child is able to continue to learn and achieve over the next few weeks as schools are closed.

We appreciate that this will be a challenging time for yourselves and your children. We are expecting your daughter to take a strong level of responsibility for her learning and to attempt as much of the work set as she can, seeking out the advice and guidance of staff if she is unsure and requires assistance.

We understand that you are not teachers and we are not expecting that every task will be completed, nor that you have all the answers to your daughter’s queries about her various subjects. It’s important that you maintain a sane, safe and happy home.

There are various ways for you and your children to get in touch for advice and support if this is required. Whilst there may be a skeleton staff presence on site, the site will not generally be open for visits. You can contact the academy using the methods described below.


For general queries

Email info@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk or call reception 0207 732 2276 between 9am and 2pm. Someone will pass on your query to the relevant member of staff, who will endeavour to get in touch with you via phone. Email/telephone response time will be 24-48 hours.


Academic queries

For queries about academic matters, including queries about understanding the work set, your daughter should email her teachers directly or use the chat functions in Edmodo or MS Teams, following the etiquette for remote working. The email addresses of staff can be accessed when your daughter uses her school email address. Response time 24-48 hours.


For safeguarding or welfare matters

Email the relevant Head of House or our Education Welfare Officer Chris Lamb. Contact details are available on the academy website contact page. Response time 24-48 hours. If the matter requires urgent attention, you should contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead Aimee Robson on a.robson@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk 

Please note that an emergency should always be reported to police and/or children’s social care as staff will not check emails constantly. All pupils can also seek support via the SHARP function on the academy website.

All pupils have access to an Edmodo group for their year group which is monitored and includes lots of materials to support physical and mental wellbeing, as we recognise many children are finding the current situation very worrying. Please encourage your daughter to access those materials, and to contact kooth.com if she has a concern about her wellbeing that she would like to speak to someone about.
