Our partnership with parents and carers plays a crucial role in ensuring students achieve at the highest level

Often parental involvement in a child’s education reduces when they reach secondary school. We will be committed to ensuring that does not happen. Regular communication with parents is incredibly important to us.


The academy will provide parents with regular information and data to ensure they are informed of their child’s progress: newsletters will be posted home every half term; reports will be compiled five times a year; progress, behaviour and attendance will be available to parents online, and the academy will do its utmost to support parental engagement by offering numerous opportunities for parents to meet with staff throughout the year.


We will offer an opportunity and expect parents to meet their child’s Personal Adviser in the first half term at the school as well as at scheduled meetings throughout the academic year, at which parents can meet with subject teachers, discuss their child’s progress and set targets.
