Communication with You

Communication with You

If you want to talk to us about one of your children you can ring the main Academy phone line (0121 565 8812) or come into Reception to make an appointment.

First Point of Contact

Due to the way we run our curriculum your child’s Literacy for Life teacher would be the initial point of contact. We always want to hear from you and will respond as quickly as possible. We will also provide information to you in the following ways:

Group Call Messenger

Each parent will receive an account to download an app which will allow you to see key data about your child, receive communications from the Academy and keep up to date with day to day messages.

The Hub

On this website, our hub centre will keep you updated with the latest news, dates and events and acts as a constantly updated online newsletter. To start we have put together a Starting Secondary School for Students and a Starting Secondary School for Parents article on the Hub.

The Learning Gateway

Each student will receive an account for the Learning Gateway where they can upload their work, access past lessons and review work that has been set.

Letters and Reports

We will, of course, provide regular assessment information and a full end of year report to your preference of paper copy or e-mail.

Most importantly, do contact us whenever you feel the need to; it is better to let us know something before it becomes an issue. The more we communicate with each other, the more of a partnership it becomes.
