Communication

We value strong, committed partnerships between home and school and believe they play a crucial role in our pupils’ development into successful young adults. Some of the ways we will communicate include:

  • Home School Link Book
    The Home School Link Book is amongst other things, a means of communication to and from your child’s teachers and offers a dedicated space for parent communications. The book is reviewed and signed by your child’s class/form teacher once a week.
  • School letters
    We send the majority of school letters to parents via email as this is the most efficient and effective way of ensuring safe delivery. Letters are also posted on the school website (with the exception of school trips due to safeguarding the protection of our pupils). Paper copies are available from the school office upon request.
  • Text message
    From time to time we will communicate by text message. This is often the quickest method to send information to parents and will usually be used to send reminders or notify the cancellation of an after school activity. It is therefore essential that you inform us of any change in your contact details.
  • Newsletters
    Newsletters are sent on a regular basis via email, providing information on recent or forthcoming events, celebrating achievements, administration reminders and important dates. They are also accessible on the school website.
  • Consultations
    Parent consultation evenings are held during the Autumn Term, providing the opportunity to review how your child is settling in their new school/year. In addition, parent consultation evenings are also held at the end of the Spring Term.
  • Reports
    Detailed reports covering all National Curriculum subjects and other aspects of your child’s education are sent out annually.
