The Team

Who to contact

Please contact your son’s Class Teacher or Form Tutor in the first instance if you wish to discuss your son’s education or inform us of anything which you feel might be important for us to know.

If your son is in the Sixth Form, or if you are calling from another Sixth Form provision with regards to a student on roll at Nightingale Community Academy, please speak to Mr Marion.

If the Tutor is unavailable or if you require further information, please contact the relevant Key Stage Coordinator. If you wish to talk about your child’s EHCP/Statement or your call relates to their Annual Review, please contact the SENCO.
