Trying to talk to the class teacher in the morning simply halts a calm start to the day. If you need to talk urgently go to the office where they can pass on urgent messages.

If there is a difficulty they will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time.
Local area trips where the children might walk down the library will not need your permission. Travelling further a field or with transport will require your permission. Obviously we have to charge (Charging Policy is on our web) but we always aim to keep costs down and we can on many occasions reduce costs by subsidising some trips.
If you are asking someone else to collect you child at the end of the day we must have a letter or an e mail to confirm who this is with. We will not let children leave without permission in writing. One letter with details will suffice.
