From September 2012, the Department for Education (DfE), supported by the Local Authority, required schools to publish key information online, rather than by paper.
This is following the speech given by Sir Michael Wilshaw HMCI in February 2012 which states that in order to save money, schools are no longer required to publish key information in paper format.
We will always appreciate that some parents may not have access to a computer, and copies of relevant website pages can be printed for those parents on request.
As a school we have been working towards a paperless form of communication since 2011, as a result of a review of back office tasks in order to introduce efficiency savings. In a society where budgets remain challenging for us all, with schools being no exception, we always aim to seek to maximise how we can achieve best value, and value for money across the school.
By introducing text messaging, and email correspondence, we have been able to maximise resources in the classroom, and reducing back office bureaucracy. Plus, we can get information to you in a much more timely manner, and all the updated information you need about our school is available from our website!
Paper copies of urgent correspondence will continue to be sent to parents who have not signed up to receive email correspondence, although there will be a delay in this information being received.
All non-urgent correspondence will be sent in electronic format only, with copies always available on our website.
If you are not currently receiving emails or text messages from the school, please click HERE or contact us as soon as possible to begin to benefit from this form of communication.
Currently, 98% of parents are registered with ParentMail to recieve online communication!
