Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Role of Parents

We believe that all parents/carers have an important role to play in the education of their child. Therefore we try our best to ensure that parents/carers are made to feel welcome and valued in their dealings with all members of staff. We recognise the role that you have played in shaping the development of your child, and the value in your partnership with the education going forward. We do this through:

  • Offering parents regular opportunities to talk about their child’s progress with their subject teachers
  • Encouraging parents to talk to teachers if there are any concerns. If needed a meeting will be set up between the staff and parent/carer so that any issues can be resolved quickly
  • Providing details of your child's curriculum and subject content throughout their time with us
  • Organising special evenings where parents and carers can learn about how to support their child through examinations

The Academy believes that effective partnership between ourselves and parents is essential if we are to be successful. The Academy ensures that parents are kept up to date about their child’s progress by sending home reports three times a year. This together with a Parents Evening to ensure that every parent has the opportunity to regularly meet with the Academy staff. We operate a system of ‘same day’ calling for all absences, ensuring that parents are always sure if their students are in attendance at the Academy. Year Team Leaders are the first point of contact if parents have an issue they would like to discuss. These highly skilled members of staff are constantly available during the Academy day, this means that you are more likely to receive a reply immediately.
