Homelearning is organised in a different ways for each year group. Homelearning tasks should be written in the Student’s Planner and should be signed by a parent each week. You can also use the planner to communicate comments or difficulties with the Form Tutor and/or subject teachers. If difficulties continue, please make an appointment to see either the Form Tutor or Student Manager. Students can access the LRC as a venue to complete Homelearning tasks at lunchtimes and after school.
We believe that good schooling is about us working in partnership with parents and students to ensure the best outcomes for the students. In order to do this lines of communication need to be clear and easy to follow. The first point of contact for parents is their child’s Form Tutor or Student Manager. A phone call or email to them is usually sufficient to ensure that an issue can either be dealt with there and then or you will be directed to the most appropriate person to help.
The school also has a text messaging system that is used to inform parents when students don’t arrive in school on any given day. We also use it to inform parents of emergency school closures and reminders for Progress Evenings etc. It is vital to keep us informed of any changes to your child’s contact details.
