We believe that strong communication links between the College and parents, guardians and carers are vital in supporting students in achieving their personal best. Research has shown that students’ academic progress and achievements are significantly influenced by the extent of parental involvement and interest in their education. The College communicates with parents, guardians and carers in a variety of different ways:
•Verbal: in meetings, by telephone
•Events: information evenings, open evening, academic tutoring
•Written: letters, notes in planners, newsletters
•Electronic: notices posted on the College website, text messages and email
Results from the latest surveys indicate that the majority of our parents, guardians and carers are happy with the quality and quantity of home/college communication. However, if you have any suggestions for further improving communications, please let us know as we are always receptive to new ideas and initiatives.
