I've taught both my children (as a supply teacher). My wife works at their school. everyone knows who's related to whom - no point trying to hide it.
Our rule has always been that I'm the "parent" for all communication. No behaviour/homeworketc. issues are to be discussed in school and if any teacher tries, they're reminded to phone me after work.
Pupils may talk to your son about you being strict (or whatever) - I'd suggest that you give him a script to the effect that 'you're just doing a job, nothing to do with him, if you have a problem take it to someone else' - and stick to that script; otherwise you risk him being pulled into situations unfairly.
