Parents & Carers

Few children flourish at school without the active support of parents and carers. We positively encourage your participation in school life and we will do our very best to involve you in the education of your child.

You will receive regular updates about your child’s progress that will give you an accurate and detailed description of what they have achieved and what they need to concentrate on. We are able to supply this level of information because we have a sophisticated data collection and analysis system that tracks the performance of every child in every class and subject, enabling our teachers, leaders and parents to know exactly how well they are doing. Parents’ evenings offer the opportunity to discuss this in depth.

Parents Evenings are particularly important because they give you the opportunity to find out how you can help your children to progress. Please watch out for communications from us telling you when your next Parents Evening will be.

The other central point of communication will be your child’s Planner. The Planner is a diary of every week at school, recording all the merits that learners are awarded and any disciplinary, attendance and punctuality issues day by day. It also records your child’s homework and asks you to sign off the work that they have done.

If, for any reason, you wish to come into the academy and discuss any aspect of your child’s education or welfare, you are very welcome to do so.

At the same time, we will be keeping you up to date with the life of the academy, it’s programme of continuous improvement and the further initiatives being introduced by the Trust, using Weduc (our Parents App), newsletters and social media.
