Parents Communication & Online services
How do we communicate with parents?
Communicating with you is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and school news that really matters is something we care about.
Here is an overview of the different communications strategies that we use:
Parentmail - Main School Office Correspondence
Most parent information is sent through this platform - please see the link below to make sure you have access.
