Alva Academy has an excellent team of pupil support teachers who work hard to get to know the children well and form good links with parents and carers. If any parent or carer has a query or concern relating to their son or daughter they should always contact the pupil support teacher in the first instance. The pupil support teacher may then pass the matter on to the Year Head to deal with if they feel this is more appropriate.
