Please ensure we have your correct contact details. This is particularly important if we need to contact you in an emergency. Please inform the office staff as soon as possible if any of your details change (eg. phone numbers, address, doctor’s name, emergency contact details, etc).
School website

Please visit the school website in the first instance if you have a query – it is regularly updated! You will find details about trips, sporting events, PTA events and more on the School Calendar. Updates are made regularly throughout the school day and you can find the latest news and our twitter feed on the homepage. If you have any feedback on the website, please email:


You can follow us on Twitter @gfs_stalbans. We also have a Twitter feed on the school website (see footer) so you don’t miss any of our tweets.


You can also follow us on Facebook. Blog posts are automatically sent to Facebook so you don’t miss any news from the blogs.

School Comms

School Comms allows us to send you emails or text messages and cuts down on printing and photocopying. We currently send out regularly School Comms messages containing newsletter, important updates, reminders, and other news. If you do not have access to a computer/email at home, we will continue to send paper-copies of letters home with your child. If you wish to sign up for School Comms or are having any problems with School Comms, please inform the school office.


Teamer is an online team management system app which we use to manage our sports teams (and sometimes other activities). It allows the teachers to see quickly and easily who is attending an event. Teamer is also used to manage parent volunteers for sporting events. If you have any questions about using Teamer, you should email
