Parents play an important role in the success of their child at school and we regard ourselves as being in partnership with them. Our first hope is that parents will get to know the school and particularly the teachers responsible for their child.
Secondly, that they will provide the situation at home in which their child is able to work.
Thirdly, that they will feel confidence in the school and have a positive attitude towards their child’s learning.
In all partnerships it is important that both parties are regularly in contact with each other. We provide a number of ways of doing this:
Academic Review days which give an opportunity to talk with the child’s tutor.
Partnership Evenings aimed at sharing information appropriate to different stages in a child’s school career.
Written reports giving specific details on attitude and progress.
Meetings in connection with the choice of subjects for Years 8, 11 and Sixth Form.
The regular Newsletter to parents.
Open invitations to attend Open Days, sporting events, plays and concerts and Communion services.
In addition, when need arises, we ask parents to come to school to talk about particular concerns that we might have. In the same way, we are pleased to see parents at school when they feel that a matter needs to be raised more urgently than can be done through the regular pattern of meetings.
Your child's attendance and assessment grades can be accessed from the Parent Gateway site. If any contact details are incorrect please contact the school office via phone or email to inform us.
Parent's questions and concerns can be dealt with quicker if they contact the most appropriate person via email. The contact staff page gives details of all staff email addresses. For attendance, behaviour and progress issues please contact the personalised learning team in the first instance. For subject related issues please contact the head of the relevant subject.
Thank you for your support.
