Working with parents and young people
We take a lead from the student as to the level of involvement of parents/ carers on a day to day basis, and try to support students to take responsibility for their own learning.
However, all parents/carers are invited to Progress Evenings and formal reviews. You will also be able to access live data about your young person’s attendance and academic progress through the Parent Portal, and you will receive three formal reports a year. In between, you can ask to see or speak to their Academic Mentor who can liaise with teachers, or you can contact a particular teacher directly.
Any concerns about support for a student with additional needs can be directed to the Learning Development Team Manager by phone or email.
Parents/carers also have access to information through their specific pages on the website and are asked to complete an annual survey, which is followed up if any concerns are raised.
