New Year Plans – Paperless Plans

Following discussion in Parent Forum ‘Coffee and Catch Up’ sessions, we are moving towards going paperless which means letters will be emailed via parent pay and links to letters on our school website texted via our messaging service.

The first step of this process is to ensure that your chosen contact details (mobile telephone and email) are up to date.

If you wish to update your phone number or address, there is a blue form in the entrance foyer.

If you wish to update your email used on ParentPay, please do this via your ParentPay settings.
